U.S. Army Veteran And Bus Driver Is Warming Hearts After Giving His Gloves To Freezing Child

One Thursday morning, bus driver Jon Lunceford witnessed something that he just could not believe was happening.

As he pulled up to the sidewalk, he realized that a little student was crying while waiting for the bus. It was freezing outside, and the student couldn’t bear it any longer. His ears and nose were red from the cold and his bare hands were frigid.

I’m a grandfather, you know. No one wants a kid to suffer like that.” He said.

Lunceford pulled off his gloves and helped the child put them on while reportedly telling the student, “It’ll be okay, It’ll be okay.”

Once he had dropped all of the children off at school, he immediately headed to the local dollar store. He purchased 10 hats and 10 sets of gloves in black and pink. 

He went to the administration to help track the boy down, and the pair found the boy in the library. The bus driver gave the child a new hat and a new pair of gloves. He told the students in the library that if anyone on his route didn’t have a hat or gloves, they should just ask. One girl immediately raised her hand and asked for a hat.

Lunceford, a U.S. Army veteran, has driven a bus for the Kennewick School District for three years, but this is the first time that he witnessed something like this.
