HELMETTA, NJ - Where would we be without UPS drivers during the coronavirus shutdown? UPS drivers like Helmetta's Rob Boyler help people get much-needed items as wells as things like puzzles, books and board games to keep the kiddos and adults busy while everyone stays at home to help stop the spread of the coronavirus. Boyler has been a UPS driver for 30 years and is not a stranger to working 12-hour days. While most people welcome his arrival and even provide hand sanitizer and other protective gear, others are fearful when his truck pulls up to deliver a package.

Boyler's wife Jane nominated him to be tapped as Helmetta's latest Hometown Hero. She worries about him every day and prays for his safety and the safety of all the essential workers who are putting their lives on the line to help others during this unprecedented time.
