Good Samaritans Raise Money for Man Walking Miles for Work

ST. PETERBURG, FL (WTXF) Two weeks ago, a Florida man who was walking miles with his lawn mower to cut grass was down on his luck. But thanks to a few Good Samaritans he no longer has to walk to work.

After his truck broke down 83-year old John Joyce was pushing his lawn mower for miles in order to make a few extra bucks. However, that all changed after his story began to spread and touched the hearts of those he served in the community. A St. Peterburg man and his wife decided to try and help. They started a GoFundMe page, which raised $13,000 in donation money. And now, john has a new set of wheels. 

In addition to the new truck,  there was enough money raised to pay for John's car insurance, gas and a Home Depot gift card.

See the special surprise in the video above.
