This is the heartwarming moment a woman from Tennessee cried tears of joy after her co-workers bought her a new car.
Linda Walton could not believe her eyes after her boss and co-workers teamed up to buy her a vehicle.
Linda’s colleagues were shocked when they discovered Linda had a six-hour-long roundtrip commute to work.
The emotional moment was caught on camera as Linda’s boss, Krissy Marcellini Tammaro, presented her with a 1998 Pontiac Grand Prix.
Her colleagues from Pristine Clean and Organizational Services in Cordova all pitched in to pay for the car.
The caring colleagues even paid for the first month of car insurance as well as money for gas.
Dedicated Linda would make the two-hour bus journey for some 30 miles all the way from Memphis. She then walked another 40 minutes to get to her job.
Despite the trek, she has never missed a day in the two months she has been with the company.
Her co-workers also wanted to show their support after Linda’s mother recently died.
Her co-workers only became aware of Linda’s long commute to work after another employee took her home.
Her boss soon found out about the daily trek and decided to do something about it.
The team decided to buy her a car which would bring the 30 mile journey down to a 25 minute commute.
‘She is a great human being,’ Tammaro told Inside Edition. ‘If you were to know Miss Linda, you would want to do this for her. She has a huge heart.’
‘The determination she has to come to work — who wouldn’t want to reward someone like that?’
On Friday, Tammaro invited Walton over to her house, where she was surprised with a 1998 Pontiac Grand Prix.
In an emotional video that was posted online, Linda is seen breaking down as her work colleagues each give her a big hug.
‘I was totally surprised, totally surprised,’ Walton said to CBS News, ‘It’s like night and day. You would never understand. It’s a hard, long commute.’
‘I had to depend on other people or get up early to catch the bus,’ Walton said. ‘It was a daily struggle.’
‘All my prayers were answered. I prayed the night before I couldn’t get a ride to work… I asked God to fix my transportation problems — I know it was him.’
