When he saw a young man wearing a fast food uniform walking on the side of the road on a blazing hot 95-degree day in Rockwall, Texas, Andy Mitchell pulled over and offered him a ride. And that’s how he met 20-year-old Justin Korva and learned he walks three miles to work and home again at night.
Korva’s determination to work and save up for a car moved Mitchell and he posted his story on Facebook and hundreds in the community were moved to help. The owner of a local restaurant offered to put a donation box out to help Korva with his car quest. And with some help from Mitchell, they’d raised over $5,500 in less than 48 hours!
Danny Rawls, general sales manager of Toyota of Rockwall helped get the price down on a 2004 Camry and the kind strangers bought it for Korva. They even had enough leftover to pay for his insurance for a year, as well as two years worth of oil changes and a $500 gas card!
The group of givers brought the car to Korva at work and surprised him with the gift. The young man couldn’t believe the generosity these strangers showed him. And now he’ll be driving to work in style with the help of his new friends.
