Jhaqueil Reagan, 18, was stopped by the owner of a New Orleans-inspired restaurant located in Indianapolis after he saw the young man trudging through the early morning snow and ice last week.
According to Fox59, Reagan told the owner that he was walking to a job interview for a minimum wage job at a local thrift store. Though the owner knew the interview was at 10th and Sherman, he soon found out that Reagan was actually living at 42nd and Post, nearly 10 miles away.
The owner Bouvier, who also goes by Papa, gave him a ride the rest of the way, gave him money for lunch, and told him he’d try to see if he could find room for him in his kitchen if he still needed a job after the interview.
Reagan shared the story of his day on Facebook and within a couple of hours, thousands of people had read it.
