Volunteers are so important to our society. Even though they don’t get paid for their efforts, their support and kindness does not go unnoticed.
Bobby Weitzel is one of those special volunteers. Since 1969, he’s been volunteering with Reading High School in Reading, Pennsylvania, helping out mostly with their sports teams but never failing to give students a high-five in the hallway.
He was already intellectually disabled, but in 1977 he fell down a 33 foot hole and broke his back in three places—leaving him permanently disabled.
Even though life has beaten Bobby down, he showed up at the high school every day, supporting hundreds of high school students.
Students at Reading High wanted to repay Bobby for his kindness. They held a dunking contest where Bobby thought he was a judge, but the whole thing was actually a celebration for him! You can tell from the look on his face that he was touched.
The world would be a much better place if we had more people like Bobby helping others!
