Act of kindness – Bus driver builds wheelchair ramp for special need girl
Thomas Mitchell is a mechanic from Clarksville, Tennessee. Whenever he’s needed he also fills in as a substitute bus driver for the Clarksville-Montgomery County School System. His route occasionally includes bringing a group of special needs children to school.
One morning while he was on his duty, he noticed a mother struggling to bring her daughter, who is in a wheelchair, down the front steps of her porch. Mitchell couldn’t forget the incident. He desperately wanted to do something to help this family. So, a few days later, he called the mother and offered to build a customized wheelchair ramp for her daughter, and that too all for free.
Mitchell gathered tools, co-workers and a few friends to help him in the task. A few months after the initial phone call, Mitchell and his crew arrived at the family’s home and started working. In less than three hours, much needed ramp was ready for the little girl to use.
