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."
