An 86-year-old Georgia man has donated approximately $400,000 to a local charity over the course of about 30 years, using money he received from recycling.
Johnny Jennings began recycling decades ago as a way to spend time with his only child, a son named Brent.
The two would walk roads and pick up cans – and then recycle the cans for money.
Johnny expanded his efforts, driving to churches and offices to pick up items from others.
Amazingly, he’s been able to collect about $400,000, which he has donated to a group of shelters that helps troubled kids and families.
Johnny continues to make collections and donations and does so because of his love for the children at the shelters – and does his best to avoid publicity and the limelight, which is becoming difficult because of all the lives he’s touched. (ABC News)
