BENECIA, CALIFORNIA — Benecia police officers are being hailed for their kindness after helping to raise nearly $45,000 to help out a hard-working teen.
Jourdan Duncan, aged 18, was down on his luck several month ago. His vehicle broke down, meaning he had to trek five hours daily to and from work.
According to Inside Edition, Officer Kirk Keffer spotted him one night and asked him what was going on. Duncan told him about his car, and how he was walking to work and trying to pay for car repairs and college.
Inspired by the 18-year-old’s work ethic, Keffer went to his local officer’s association to see if they could help, notes a GoFundMe page set up by Benecia police officers to help Jordan. They bought him a cool new bike to help with his commute to work.
The GoFundMe has received some $45,000 in donations from across the U.S. Thanks to that, Jourdan was able to get a new car and now drives to work.
Jourdan is also studying to be a California Highway Patrol Officer, reported Inside Edition.
