Oregon Community Honors Delivery Man With A Parade

posted by Mia Adams - 

When people in Gresham, Oregon need something done, they call Todd Kirnan. He’s been making deliveries and doing odd jobs around town 12 hours a day, seven days a week, for nearly 20 years. The 45-year-old has autism, but a more appropriate label would be to call him a workaholic.

Almost all the businesses in downtown use Kirnan when they need a run to the post office or the coffee shop and he does everything they ask. In return, people tip him, but he’s not in it for the money. To Todd, it’s all about the smiles and hugs he gets from the people in his town. “I like helping people, you know, making people happy, making them smile,” he says.

And to honor him for his dedicated service, the people of Gresham recently threw him a parade. Hundreds of people came out to line the streets and pay tribute to their hometown delivery guy. Todd loves old TV shows, so they even borrowed a Batmobile to drive him to the center of town where they had another surprise waiting - a statue of him, their very own hero.
