The 54-year-old employee showed gratitude and thanked the company for remembering him and at least sending him something even if little.
“I’m happy about anything; I’m thankful for anything I get. I’m not that type of person, believe me. I’ve been through a lot. He said.
“It’s a great company, you know, I’ve been there 27 years.
“But like most big corporations, they’ve kind of lost touch with their workers, and through covid and whatever, they started cutting out programs.”
“We used to get cheques for 20 years, and that’s what I thought that movie ticket was.” He continued.
“I was like, ‘hey, they finally gave me my card,’ and then I saw it was not even two movie tickets – it was one.
“So I was like ‘this is just too much,’ and [it seemed] it was just stuff they had laying around that they put together.”
After his video went viral, Kevin’s daughter created a GoFundMe in his name to raise money so that he could celebrate his end-of-service.
“He originally began working at this job as a single father when he gain custody of me and my older sister 27 years ago.
Then as our family grew and he remarried, he continue [sic] to work here because of the amazing health insurance that was provided through this employer because it was unionized,” Reported, people.
Sreyna then started campaign by writing on the fundraising page, “Which got all four of his daughters through high school and college with full healthcare coverage.”
“My dad continues to work here, because though he does look young, he is coming up on retirement age and leaving would cost him his retirement,” she continued. “In no way are we asking for money or is he expecting any money but if anyone feels like blessing him he would love to visit his grandchildren.”
Through this, she raised around $55,000, an amount beyond her expectations.
Reported TMZ, the biggest donation was given by famous comedian and actor David Spade. He donated a sum of $5000.

“Keep up the good work. 27 years.” Wrote David
