Robert Reed, 60, is a dedicated school janitor at Farmington Elementary School in Germantown, Tennessee and has been commuting to school 4 hours each way, taking buses as well as walking. He is a favorite custodian among the staff, students and parents whose hard work is highly appreciated.
When his coworkers at the school found out that Reed’s commute to work is a struggle, they decided to give him the surprise of a lifetime. They started a fundraiser to help raise money for Reed so he could buy a new car to get to work, instead of taking three buses and walking 2 miles to get to the school on time.
The generosity of his coworkers and their parents raised over $7000 for the custodian who can now buy himself a truck to get to work. This means that the janitor has a reliable means of transport to get to the school and also start a yard business on the side to support his family and make ends meet.
In the video, we see a coworker telling Reed about the fundraising and how much they collected. The good new immediately brings him down on his knees with tears of joy. He is shocked but full of gratitude as he appreciates the kindness of everyone who supported him. His humbleness even made us cry happy tears!
