Antonio Gwynn spent 10 hours cleaning the streets of Buffalo after George Floyd protests
He was given a red 2004 Ford Mustang convertible and a college scholarship as well as a year of free insurance
A teenager in Buffalo, New York, saw first hand that hard work does pay off and that good deeds are rewarded.
After riots related to the killing of George Floyd left his hometown in shambles, 18-year-old Antonio Gwynn Jr. picked up a broom at 2 am and didn’t put it down until later that afternoon.
When local volunteers showed up on Bailey Avenue to start cleaning up, they found that most of the work had already been done.
Matt Block saw what the teen had done and decided to thank him on behalf of the entire city by giving Antonio Gwynn Jr. his red 2004 Ford Mustang convertible.
Amazingly, Gwynn Jr. says the Mustang is identical to the car his mother owned before passing away in 2018.
“I couldn’t come to grips with selling it and this was a good way for me to get rid of it and know someone that gets it is going to appreciate it,” Block told WKBW-Buffalo.
The insurance on the car will be covered by another Buffalo resident, Bob Briceland of Briceland Insurance Agency.
Gwynn Jr. has also been offered a full scholarship to Medaille College in Buffalo. The teen hopes to study business and mechanics with the goal of opening a repair shop some day.
See? There’s still good news out there.
