Region 8 community comes together, buys car for young man

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

A region 8 man inspired a community to pay it forward.

Aaron Farley was headed home from work in Jonesboro when he noticed his co-worker, Tim, leaving on a bicycle.

Farley asked Tim why he was riding the bike and discovered he didn't have a vehicle.

Farley then set up a Go Fund Me account and asked people to donate.

In just 24 hours, they had enough money to buy Tim a car.

“I'm just so thankful God led me to this young man and I know one day he's going to be successful,” Farley said. “Maybe he can return the favor and pay it forward and maybe change somebody else's life.”

Farley said over 120 people donated and they are still trying to help.

They've managed to give Tim 3 months' worth of insurance and gas money.
