A guy named Chris Veseth has worked as a greeter at a Lowe’s near Harrisburg, Pennsylvania for the past 17 years.
He’s spent his entire life in a wheelchair because of a disability, but he’s always in a good mood, knows where everything in the store is, and customers love him.
But he mentioned to a co-worker recently that his wheelchair was falling APART, and he was using DUCT TAPE to hold it together. He didn’t have the $8,000 he needed to buy a new one.
So she set up a Go Fund Me page for him last Thursday, and told customers about it. And they ended up reaching their goal THAT NIGHT. They passed the 8,000-dollar mark just before midnight.
But people KEPT donating . . . more than SIX HUNDRED of them . . . and it’s now over TWENTY SIX thousand dollars. Chris told the local news that he’s totally overwhelmed.
His manager says he’s a great guy who COULD be bitter and angry . . . but he refuses to let anything get him down, and deserves the attention he’s getting. If you want to help, search for “New Wheelchair for Chris Veseth” on GoFundMe.com. (Fox43)
