FedEx driver gives new basketball hoop to Indiana boy in act of kindness

A FedEx driver’s act of kindness drove an Indiana family to tearsand got their son even more excited to shoot hoops.

本月初, a FedEx driver named Aubrey gave a new Spalding basketball hoop to a young boy named Elijah, in New Trenton, 印第安那州.

根据一个 Facebook帖子 from Elijah’s mother, Coledo Wheeler, the previous hoop “was in really rough shape but still usable.”

Wheeler wrote that Aubrey, who sometimes delivers packages in the area, had seen Elijah with his friends and family playing basketball using the old hoop.

然而, after Aubrey left the new hoop for Elijah in the yard, Wheeler said she didn’t even notice it at first. What she did see was a brand new basketball and an instruction manual for the hoop, along with a note.

“Just wanted you and your son to have the best hoop that’ll grow with him and all his friends!” the note said. “It’s wonderful that you guys shoot hoops with him.”

Wheeler said when she read the note, she “instantly started crying” because “a random act of kindness had happened at our home.”

At first, she still couldn’t tell who it was from, but eventually realized it was one of the local FedEx drivers.

Wheeler said she kept the new hoop a secret from her son until he came home from staying with his dad. When they told him who gave it to him, Wheeler said “he knew exactly who Aubrey was.”
