PRINCETON, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – When 19-year-old Princeton Walmart cashier John Lopez selflessly paid for a woman’s groceries on Monday, he didn’t expect anyone else to notice.
On Friday, the community, including the Princeton Mayor, honored Lopez at the Walmart where he works.
Brandon Weddle, who organized the event, said Lopez is an inspiration.
“I saw what John did and how selfless of an act it was and it was just something that really touched me,” said Weddle.
The GoFundMe page for Lopez, who is saving money for college, has raised a little more than $3,500 so far.
Princeton Mayor John-Mark Caldwell gave Lopez a certificate as well.
