Teen Who Walked Five Hours To Work Has New Crowdsourced Car


When officers from the Benicia Police Department in California met Jourdan Duncan and learned that he walked five hours to and from work every day, they got a bicycle for the 18-year-old. But their generosity didn’t stop there. They also started a GoFundMe campaign to get the teen a car.

And after four months of donations, they’ve raised over $42,000 for Duncan. And he was able to buy a used Volkswagen Passat to cut more time off his commute to his job as a packaging line worker.

Now Duncan can drive to his college classes and his job, and he even hopes to become a California Highway Patrol Officer one day. "They’re setting an example of what a good community is," Duncan says of the officers who went above and beyond for him. "I thought maybe that could be me — maybe I can have a change in our society and change in the community."
