TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — A longtime worker at an Alabama restaurant received a generous surprise from a customer Monday.
The employee at Taco Casa in Tuscaloosa, who wished to remain anonymous, had been forced to walk to work because he no longer had a car. Monday, an anonymous customer solved that problem by gifting the worker a paid-off, white Acura sedan, AL.com reported.
Taco Casa filmed the moment when the employee was given the car and posted it on the restaurant’s Facebook page.
“There is a gentleman here in town that wants to remain anonymous but wants to surprise you,” Rod Wilkin II, part of the Wilkin family who owns Taco Casa, said in the video. “And he has just given me keys to a car for you, and it’s right there.”
“It’s just amazing to think that a customer has met another person for 15 minutes and feels like God has told him that hey I need to buy him a car,” Wilkin told WIAT-TV. “I need to take care of this man, I need to show him and I need to show the love of Jesus to this individual.”
Mary Beavers, a customer at the restaurant, praised the worker and the person who gave him the car.
“I just think it shows the dedication he has for his job his love he has for customers at Taco Casa,” Beavers told WIAT. “And the fact that he got rewarded for it I think its really special and awesome.”
