Teen Who Spent Hours Cleaning Up After Protest Gifted A Car & Scholarship

    18-year-old Antonio Gwynn Jr. made headlines last week when he spent 10 straight hours picking up trash following protests in his home city. 

    He started at 2 a.m. on Monday and did not stop cleaning for the next 10 hours. When an organized group of neighbors arrived later that morning to start clearing the damage, they found that Gwynn had already done most of the work.

    After Gwynn's story appeared on CNN and local news, a neighbor stepped up to give Gwynn a 2004 Mustang convertible. A local business chipped in with a year of free car insurance, and Buffalo's Medaille College offered him a full scholarship.

    It turns out that gift has more meaning than Block ever imagined. Gwynn's mother, who passed away in 2018, also drove a red Mustang. When he realized the coincidence, Gwynn says that he was so shocked he "didn't have any words," and Block says it gave him "goosebumps."
