Derlin Newey from Roy is 89 years old, but he cannot live comfortably in retirement.
Newey’s social security is not even enough to pay mandatory monthly bills. Therefore, the man got a job as a courier.
Derlin delivers pizza every day.
His regular customer Carlos Valdez shared daily on TikTok how an 89-year-old courier delivers his order.
Newey captivated followers with his trademark phrase: “Hello, are you looking for some pizza?”
Valdez made people wonder if Derlin should work at such a respectable age, and suggested that people collect tips for the delivery man.
Kind-hearted users of social media chipped in in a short time and collected as much as 12 thousand dollars.
The envelope with money has already been handed over to the 89-year-old courier. And he could not hold back tears from the happiness and kindness of people.
“It couldn’t be better. He needed it. I’m just glad we were able to help him. We just need to treat people with kindness and respect like he does. He stole our hearts,” Valdez shared in an interview with Today.
