An 18-year-old boy identified as Antonio Gwynn Jr has been rewarded with a car and a college scholarship after spending 10 hours to clean up a street in Buffalo, New York.
Bailey Avenue in Buffalo was covered in glass and garbage after protests occasioned by George Floyd's death, Fox 8 reports.
YEN.com.gh gathers that an organised group of neighbours arrived later to start cleaning up and realised that the teenager had already done most of the work.
Matt Block was impressed when he heard Gwynn's story and he decided to give him his prized 2004 red Mustang convertible.
After learning of Block's gift, a local businessman named Bob Briceland decided to extend a year of free auto insurance coverage through his insurance agency.
After high school, the young boy had planned to go to trade school while saving up to go to college.
Medaille College in Buffalo heard Gwynn's story and offered him a full scholarship where he will be studying business.
Reacting to all the kind gestures, Gwynn said: “I appreciate everything everyone is doing for me.”
In other news, Galen Hinshaw, a patrol officer in Louisville, Kentucky, would have been lynched by people protesting George Floyd's death, but five strangers came to his rescue.
Hinshaw was going to rescue a colleague that had radioed for help when he was surrounded by angry protesters.
The protesters asked him if he was one of the good cops, but he tried explaining to them that he and other cops care about them but his response was drowned by yelling.
