A New Hampshire man was applauded for his hard work after a customer he served wrote about him in a Facebook post.
"He knows my coffee. He knows everybody's coffee. You just walk in and he's so personable and he's so kind," Griffiths told WBIN.
"I was like, 'What are you doing here? You were working at 7:30 this morning. Was that you walking?' And he was like, 'Yup,'" Griffiths said.
During the following days, Griffiths told Bigler she was going to take a picture of him to post on social media.
"I came through the drive-thru (at Dunkin Donuts) and I took a picture of him and I said, 'I'm going to make you famous,' and he goes, 'Yeah, right, cause of my crazy hair or something?’" Griffiths said.
Bigler told WBIN that he works 20-hour shifts straight on Sundays and Mondays. He walks a total of approximately 16 miles to get to both jobs. He said he did what he had to do to see his son and to pay his bills.
As a result of Griffiths' Facebook post, which was shared more than 20,000 times, reached Autoserv of Tilton, New Hampshire.
"I thought we probably have a couple cars here that we could just donate to him so he doesn't have to walk 20 miles a day," said Ryan Parks, a sales manager at Autoserv.
The car dealership gifted Bigler a 2005 Honda Accord.
"He persevered through two minimum wage jobs," Griffiths said. "You know, it doesn't matter what job you're at, as long as you try hard and do your best you can make it."
