Buffalo teen Antonio Gwynn Jr., gets car and college scholarship

A Buffalo teen who spent 10 hours cleaning up the city previous week after protests and demonstrations has got an outpouring of support from the community that included a new car and a college scholarship.

Antonio Gwynn Jr., 18, observed footage of his hometown after riots and protests and took decision clean up. He got a broom and some trash bags and started cleaning the streets at 2 a.m. Monday.

When neighbors got to the site to clean that morning, they saw Gwynn had already done most of the work. So they turned their attention to helping Gwynn.

One man, 27-year-old Matt Block, observed that Gwynn had asked for car-buying advice on Facebook, so he gave him his red 2004 Ford Mustang convertible. After that, a local businessman gave Gwynn a year of free auto insurance through his company.

Gwynn’s mother, who died in 2018, also drove a red Mustang.

Gwynn prepared to attend trade school to save up for college, but after knowing his story, Medaille College in Buffalo offered him a full scholarship. Gwynn prepares to study business this fall, and one of his goals is to start a cleaning business.

“I appreciate everything everyone is doing for me,” Gwynn informed CNN.
