UPS delivery driver Carolyn Crump is used to being the one delivering things. But her customers learned she was in need and they all jumped in to help to deliver something to her–a new roof.
Carolyn Crump’s works as a UPS delivery driver spans more than twenty-three years. And because of her long-standing career, she calls many of her customers friends and family. And the feeling is mutual.
"Every single person can give you a story where she gone above and beyond, like bringing up groceries when someone's arm was broken. She's got a heart of gold. The day before we had to put our dog down, I found her in our foyer saying her goodbyes to our dog. That's the type of person she is," said Jason Lehtman.
Jason found out Carolyn had a leaking roof. And he knew he needed to do something to help the beloved UPS delivery driver!
Community Puts Together Special Blessing
Moved with compassion, Jason created a GoFundMe page to crowdfund for repairs to the thirty-year-old roof. The entire project came together in less than two weeks and raised several thousand dollars within two days.
The community came together not only to raise the money for the repairs but to surprise her too. One customer called in about a fake package for Carolyn Crump to pick up.
Next, they blindfolded Carolyn and brought her to a park where the community of friends presented the UPS delivery driver with the check. After receiving her check, she also received a round of applause before hopping back into her truck to deliver the last twenty packages of the day.
"It's easy to have a positive attitude when you know how blessed you are to just have a job, especially during a pandemic. I love online shoppers. I should get a bumper sticker that says that on my car. They don't sign my check, but they definitely supply the materials for it," she said.
UPS delivery driver Carolyn Crump's story is the exact representation of what it means to be Jesus with skin on, to be the hands and feet of Christ is the least we can do as believers to show our love for Christ and what he did for us!
“In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.'" Acts 20:35
