After seeing the same woman walk past his business each day, Florida auto shop owner, Richard Newberry, thought the woman would be a good customer for one of his used cars. He learned that Ernestina Nunez was a high school custodian who walked a mile to her job each day and offered her a very discounted price on a car. She still couldn’t afford the vehicle, so he decided to give it to her for free.
Aside from her daily mile walk both ways from Dixie Hollins High School in St. Petersburg, Newberry also learned that she’s the mother of a marine who took his own life a year ago after suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. She moved to St. Petersburg with hopes to put the tragedy behind her, and this act of kindness has certainly made her work life a bit easier. Nunez will need help with tags and registration for her new set of wheels, which you can donate at https://www.gofundme.com/2hbkvvek.
