A couple of high school students from Jasper High School in Alabama have started a GoFundMe page for the school janitor, Travis Kennedy, in order to get the incredibly hard-working and beloved man a brand new pickup truck.
Sophomores Sam Hice and Preston Reed started the whole thing.
“I never knew I was living like that. You know, you didn’t know you were impacting them. I didn’t know I was impacting them. But, you know, you got to live truthful. You’ve got to be honest. You have to try to do things right. And I was made to do that,” says Kennedy to CBS 42.
“He’s always been such a hard worker and we really admire him,” Hice said.
Kennedy has been making the 20-mile drive to and from school in a beat up old truck, and the kids knew they had to help out. They started the GoFundMe page, trying to raise $20,000. As of right now, it sits at over $14,000 – click here to donate.
A tip of the cap to these students’ parents – raising them right. Nice work.
