According to news agency a Georgia woman bought a new car for student who walked 7 miles to work every day.
Jayden Sutton, a high school senior from Cobb County, Georgia, is 18 years old.
Sutton normally returns from school at 3:30 pm each day, walks to the restaurant for a 6- to 7-hour shift, then walks back home to conclude his academic year.
Every day, on average, he travels around 7 miles roundtrip. Saving money to buy a car is what drives him, especially after his mother’s vehicle was totaled in a car accident.
On December 10, 2020, local Atlanta resident Lavonda Wright Myers spotted Sutton walking on the side of the road in the rain. She offered to give him a ride to his job.
During the trip she learned his story and how he was walking since he couldn’t afford Uber rides daily and hoped to one day purchase a car of his own.
Once I dropped him off to work, his heart and determination filled my eyes with tears. He said, ‘Ma’am, I walk because I have to.
He was smiling in good spirits, and that’s a child worth blessing,” Myers told reporters.
That’s when the good samaritan decided to help Sutton out, setting up a GoFundMe page and sharing his story online.
Just two days later, she had raised $6,635 in donations. She bargained with the dealership to drop a car’s price down from $7,800 to $7,000, adding in $635 of her own money.
Purchasing a vehicle for Sutton as a surprise. The unsuspecting teen arrived at the Honda dealership, utterly unaware of what was about to happen, and ended up leaving with a brand new car.
“It’s why I adore her. You have no idea how much I appreciate it when you say thank you “Myers heard from Sutton.
“I was aware that I would walk every day if it meant delaying getting a car.
Keep up your good work or your efforts to achieve your goals. You might receive assistance. This is what occurred to me “said Sutton.
Myers stated that she is simply appreciative that she was able to assist. “In this world, more love is required.
This world has been ravaged by hatred and division, and I’m determined to do my part, one person at a time.
