FORT MYERS, Fla. — In a current environment of social distancing and disinfecting, one business owner's getting creative in finding a way to serve his community.

“If we can bring some normalcy to someone’s life even if it’s just for an hour or so…that’s cool.”

Patrick Wilke owns and operates Carbon Press - a print service and design company in downtown Fort Myers.

He tells FOX 4 that coloring is an outlet his family uses to disconnect.

Wanting to bring calm to other local kids and parents who could use help with finding activities for their children, Wilkey crafted jumbo coloring sheets.

The intricate designs of the sheets could help to keep kids preoccupied for a while. One parent on Facebook shared that they kept her children busy for two hours.

Wilkey says he posted about the sheets on Monday night. By Wednesday night, they'd distributed more than 1,000.
