Terrific small town neighborhood near Grand Rapids Michigan didn't lose their heads and get all riled up about the noisy newspaper delivery kids car, they jumped up to help him out

Around 4 am, you aren't going to be happy when woken up by a loud car's blown out and rusted through muffler... but would you call the cops?

Zeeland Michigan, outside Holland, and near Grand Rapids, has a newspaper delivery guy (age 20), who is barely scrapping by on minimum wage, and couldn't afford to replace the muffler.

Several of the residents of Steaders Borough, a developed neighborhood with it's own Facebook page (probably an HOA type thing) found the problem was a chance to help out a young guy with a rough road in life, and a low paying job, and right about the time most people put out a Christmas tip for the mailman, the newspaper kid, and the snowplow/driveway clearing guy... this group raised money and fixed up his car.

  1. That's a great story of helping some one who is trying their best to be independent, but is having a hard time. What a great country we live in. I'd like to believe the whole world is like this, but I know that's not the case. We truly are a blessed nation. Thanks for sharing Jesse.
