86-year-old Concord woman does social media the old-fashioned way

Concord resident Anna Garcia Steiner was feeling lonely after weeks of self-isolating in her Holbrook Heights home.  Wanting to connect with the world, the 86-year-old reached out to sign maker Rashida Ezzy for help. In just a few hours Garcia was happily standing on her front lawn behind a cheerful sign and waving at the neighbors as they drove by.

“We are all in this together even if we can’t hold hands right now,” the sign reads. “We Will Survive.”

Ezzy refused to take payment for the sign.

“It was my pleasure to meet Anna today,” Ezzy said.

“It’s not everyday you meet kind and sweet people.”

Rashida Ezzy is the new owner of Signs That Sell, a 50-year-old Concord business.
