It's the little things that can really make a difference.

For one Grand Prairie woman, you can make that 3,000 little things.

Michon Montgomery works for LIXIL, better known as American Standard, a water technology company that has access to 3D printers.

That means it has the capability to produce other products like face shields.

So with the help of her co-workers -- Jennifer Waugh, Alexis Johnson, Megan Morris and Aimee Rubealcaba -- Montgomery helped assemble 3,000 shields.

She delivered them herself to several senior and assisted living facilities across DFW.

Montgomery's daughter is a nurse at Medical City Dallas, which inspired her mission to give back to the community.

"I hear her stories and what they go through and I felt like I have a connection so close to her to know how busy they are and how risky their work is so I was glad to contribute," said Montgomery. "If this sparks ideas for others to do something small such as this, I think is a great idea."

LIXIL Americas is donating 50,000 face shields across the country through its local offices.

Montgomery said she's just a part of that mission and hopes she can inspire others to continue finding their own ways of giving back.

"The little things add up and they could make a huge difference," she said. "I appreciate what I can contribute, even though it may be small."
