An 18-year-old boy who spent 10 hours cleaning his street after protesters left it dirty has been rewarded.
Teenager Antoine Gwynn Jr got a reward of a car and a college scholarship for cleaning up Bailey Avenue in Buffalo after protesters of George Floyd’s death left it covered in glass and garbage.
It was gathered that an organized group of neighbours who arrived later to start cleaning up the community realized that the teenager had gotten majority of the work done.
Matt Block, who was impressed after he heard of Gwynn’s action decided to give him his prized 2004 red Mustang convertible.
A local businessman, Bob Briceland, who also learnt about Block’s gift decided to extend a year of free auto insurance coverage through his insurance agency.
Gwynn had planned to go to trade school after high school, while saving up for college.
The Medaille College in Buffalo after hearing his story, offered him a full scholarship to study Businness.
Gwynn, while reacting to the kind gestures said: “I appreciate everything everyone is doing for me.”
Gwynn is said to be a member of a Kappa Phi, where he enjoys doing community service and helps out in churches too.
