Daytonans take care of each other in the wake of COVID-19


Daytona Times photojournalist Duane C. Fernandez Sr., was out and about in Daytona Beach. Here are a few photos this week of small local businesses, particularly Crusin’ Café and a family-owned 7-Eleven, helping residents as the coronavirus pandemic continues.

7-Eleven franchise owner Rocky Singh said that he and his two brothers own three 7-Eleven stores in Daytona Beach. They intend to give away food and water until the pandemic eases.
The Singh brothers’ newest 7-Eleven store located on South Clyde Morris Boulevard and Beville Road in Daytona Beach gave away bags of food and a case of water to anyone who came by last week.
Cruisin’ Café, located at 2 South Atlantic Avenue in Daytona Beach, donated food to Daytona Beach Housing Authority (DBHA) residents. On Tuesday and Wednesday, DBHA staff members distributed residents food from the Palmetto Park (“PPU”) location
