This incredible story is about Trenton Lewis, a single dad, whose determination and devotion knows no limit. The 21-year-old man walked 11 miles each morning to get to his 4 a.m. work shift. And yet, he doesn’t told anyone about his difficult situation and he was never looking for excuses. All the hard work and all the sacrifices he made, was for his 14-month-old precious daughter.

“My pride is strong. Whatever she needs, I’m the person who is supposed to provide it for her,” declared Trenton for CNN News.

After several months, Trenton’s co-workers at a UPS facility in Little Rock, Arkansas, found out about his difficult situation and they’ve decided to give him a little help. They invited their work colleague at a brief union meeting and when he showed up, they handed him the keys of a 2006 Saturn Ion car, to his surprise. “I was emotionally moved. My heart just fell,” Lewis recalled.

This incredible act of kindness was Patricia’s Bryant idea,the Lewis’ co-worker and the one he consider like a mother.”She was like a second mom,” the young man said. “She actually got upset with me when she found out I was walking to work.” Helped by her husband and some other employees, who were touched by Lewis’ story, Patricia raised almost $2000, just enough to buy a car for their helpless colleague.

“For a young person to decide in their mind ‘if I don’t have a ride, if I can’t get a ride then I’ll walk.If a guy can do that, we can pitch in to help,” Patricia’s husband, Kenneth, said. He also added, “everybody that I talked to said yes! The hardest part was reminding them to bring cash, I told the seller what I was doing and who it was for and he said he was willing to work with me on a price.”

The young man, couldn’t find his words, in order to thank to his co-workers. “God always has something for you. I’m never going to forget this ever,” he said.
