Kevin Ford has served as cook and cashier at the Burger King in the Las Vegas McCarren International Airport for 27 years and never took a day off from work.
To show their appreciation, Burger King’s parent company gave him a gift bag that included a single movie ticket, a Starbucks cup, a pack of Life Savers, a bag of Reese’s Pieces, and other miscellaneous items in a plastic backpack. A video of Kevin showing off the contents of his goody bag went viral just days ago. Social media felt the 54-year-old should receive a more outstanding gift for his service. So did Kevin’s daughter, Seryna, who started a GoFundMe page for him which has raised more than $160,000 to date, including a $5,000 donation from actor and comedian David Spade.
Kevin appeared on ‘The Today Show’ earlier this morning and is scheduled for ‘Inside Edition’ sometime this week.
