A school bus driver in Texas bought Christmas gifts for every child on his route by using money that he saved as a way of fulfilling his “mission from God.”
Curtis Jenkins surprised students from Lake Highlands Elementary School in Dallas the last day before winter break with a bus filled with Christmas presents. Overwhelmed by what they saw, one student asked if he was Santa Claus.
“I’m not at a job, I’m on a mission from God,” Jenkins told the Dallas-Fort Worth NBC affiliate. “I don’t say anything about religion to the kids. I just let them know whatever they love is fine with me, just love somebody on the way.”
Jenkins said his job also gives him an opportunity to show each child that they have value and are loved. The gifts he gave the students included electronics, puzzles, games and even a bike.
“Seeing the faces of those kids was more than anything that I could ever do with the money,” Jenkins exclaimed.
“We talked about the things that they would want and I made a mental note of it and wrote it down,” he said.
