Small Town Surprises UPS Driver Who Goes Above And Beyond With $1,000 Gift And A Party

UPS driver Chad Turns is a neighborhood staple in the Central Pennsylvania town of Dauphin, a small town with a population of 800

“The whole town has had personal experience with Chad. He once thought a package was a gift and there was a picture on the front. My kids were playing outside so he waited until his shift was done and came back to make sure they didn’t see it.”

Dauphin resident Jenny Shickley shared that Turns often leaves treats for dogs when delivering packages. His kind and thoughtful actions were noticed by the community, even with him working extra long hours during the COVID pandemic.

Shickley organized a special event, after people commented in a neighborhood Facebook group about how much they appreciated Turns and his work.

In just two weeks time, Shickley and the group collected $1,000 for their beloved UPS driver. They then surprised Turns with the monetary gift with a large card signed by community members, arranging a fake pickup for a package.

“I’m still overwhelmed and it is touching that this community feels so strongly about me.”

We appreciate that UPS drivers like Chad are being recognized for how they are moving our world forward.” UPS spokesperson Jackie Fajt 

Turns plans to pay it forward by continuing to provide the stellar service that he is known for.
