A custodian named Chris Jackson received an incredible surprise.

Two teachers at the school were able to raise the money Jackson needed for a car, Principal Anne Wilson told

Fox News.

“That’s not unusual for our school,” Wilson told Fox.

“Any time we know of a need, people just come flooding to help … I’ve been here 20 years as principal and it’s always been that way.”

“People unify around each other, around people in times of need and in times of joy,” Wilson added. “It’s a real blessing to work here.”

Jackson responded in a video by saying, “Oh my stars, there is a God.”

“Thank you, thank you all. I thank you all.”

“I never would have dreamed of something like this,” he adds. “This is mind-blowing to me.”

Jodi Combs, a special education teacher at Unity Grove Elementary, said, “Chris is one of those co-workers that whatever you need, he’s going to make it happen.”

“The kids adore him, the teachers adore him. And he works so very hard,” Combs said.

Combs and MacDonald decided to help Jackson out by fundraising. Teachers and members of the community raised $1,000.

Though they gave Jackson most of that money, they saved the rest in their reserves because, around the same time, they also found out he was walking to work.

Jackson had saved some money for a car, though he didn’t have enough, Combs said.

“We kept some of those original funds to be able to help Chris when he did find a car, be able to get his tag and insurance and all of those things that go with it,” Combs said.

In August, one of MacDonald’s friends was selling their Chevy Impala, according to Combs.
