A Virginia teenager named T.J. Kim, who is learning to fly, decided to turn his weekly lessons into a relief mission for rural hospitals.

16-year-old Kim and his family came up with "Operation S.O.S.," which means Supplies Over Skies.

He has delivered thousands of gloves, shoe covers, nonsurgical masks and hand sanitizer to small hospitals in Virginia.
