GERMANTOWN, Tennessee – An elementary school has raised money for one of its own staff members after noticing how hard he works just to get to work.
Robert Reed is a much-loved custodian at Farmington Elementary School in Tennessee.
He said he has to catch three buses and walk two miles to get home. Colleagues took notice of his work ethic and his need, so teacher Elizabeth Malone started a Go-Fund-Me for Reed in order to raise money for a car.
Malone surprised reed with the news and his reaction was priceless.
“His work ethic is unbelievable, and we want our kids to pick up on that, not only to have a good work ethic but also if you see someone in need, try to help. It’s important to do that,” said Elizabeth Malone, teacher.
“I love these people up here. I love them! and I couldn’t have made it without them. It’s a joy to work here, pure joy,” said Robert Reed, custodian.
