Former President Bill Clinton sent out a Twitter post which included a lunch invitation for a man he’s never met.
The Mr. Lewis he was referring to is Trenton Lewis, who was given a car earlier this month after co-workers found out he’d been walking 11-mile’s to get to work for a 4 a.m. shift at a UPS facility in Little Rock, Arkansas. Never complaining or bumming a ride, the 21-year-old had been making the long trek for seven months.
His co-workers found out and decided to help Lewis (see video below).
CNN reported the story: [The co-workers] asked Lewis to come to a brief union meeting.
When he showed up, his stoic face gave way to disbelief and then a grateful smile as his coworkers handed him keys to a new car.
According to the report, fellow employees – impressed by Lewis’ determination – raised almost $2,000 to get a 2006 Saturn Ion.
“I was emotionally moved. My heart just fell,” Lewis said, according to CNN.
“God always has something for you,” Lewis continued. “I’m never going to forget this ever.”
