This single dad walked over 11 miles to work every day, so his coworkers bought him a car. Trenton Lewis had to wake up at midnight to get to work at UPS by 4 am. He said he was motivated to do this because of his 14-month-old daughter. After almost seven months, two coworkers found out and the pair gathered nearly $2,000 in donations, many from people who had never even met the 21-year-old — several retirees pitched in as well.
Lewis was told to come to a union meeting, and when he showed up, the gift was waiting for him. The group even gave him extra money to fill up the tanks.
One of his coworkers stated, “Sometimes, if you hang around good people, good things happen. But if you hang around bad people, bad things happen. So, on behalf of all of us and them, we would like to present you with this helping hand.”
The 21-year-old was attending college at Arkansas Baptist but had to stop after he had his daughter. But he says he should be “starting back up in a minute.” Should he decide to go back, the car will surely aid his endeavors, including getting to places faster.
