It was a blistering 95 degree Texas day when Andy Mitchell pulled up to 20-year-old Justin Corva and offered him a ride to work.
On the way, Mitchell learned that Corva was an employee at Taco Casa and walked three miles to and from work each shift.
When the ride was over, Mitchell snapped a picture with his new friend and gave him a Facebook shoutout, acknowledging his work ethic.
Mitchell’s kindness did not stop there. He was so impressed by Corva that he set up a GoFundMe account in hopes of raising enough money to purchase a vehicle for the young man.
According to Insider, friends and local business owners came together and accumulated enough money to set Corva up with a 2004 Toyota Camry, a year of insurance, two years of oil changes, and a $500 gas card.
When the car had been purchased, a few of the contributors brought it to Taco Casa to surprise Corva when his shift ended. His emotional reaction racked up nearly 450k views via Facebook Live Stream.
Mitchell wanted Corva to be aware of the amount of love that went into his new set of wheels.
“Justin, you can’t imagine all the people who wanted to help you,” Mitchell said. “So, instead of walking to work, buddy, you’re driving this car from now on.”
