Two Good Samaritans donated a new bicycle to a man who helps keep their community safe. His previous bike was stolen by a trespasser. The local hero is on the road from 6am every week day morning to ensure teachers are safe at opening times.
Kevin Alexander took to Facebook to share the story and pictures of beautiful bike.
"After our local community safety patrol guy Eric 'Johnny' Mullins had his only means of transport, his treasured bicycle, stolen by a trespasser... I promptly circulated his loss on social media."
The community quickly responded to help. Two Good Samaritans, a gentleman and lady, made contact and donated the bicycle to an emotional and most-appreciative Eric.
The post was well-received by social media users. Facebook user Brian Willoughby said:
"Some happy, good news for once... Bless those who made this a reality for him."
Colleen Butler said:
"God bless both. May Eric have safe rides."
Liezl Hoffmeister Phillips said:
"God bless them both."
Antonio Johanessen said:
"Love it. So happy to hear this guy has a bicycle again... and now I know a little more about what he does.... he always greets me every morning as I pass him. What a great feel-good story."
Beverley Van der Poel said:
"Thank You Lord for the donors that donated much-needed transport for Eric who is doing amazing work. May You guide and protect him as he journey to and from Shawco every morning. Thank you Ken/Fac for always supporting and opening your hearts. May God bless you abundantly."
