After finishing his usual route, Jerry loaded his lawnmower into his truck and went to the area in front of a vacant house to mow the grass and weeds.

“I’ve done it several times, but this time someone just took a picture,” Jerry said to KWTX

The school district took to their Facebook page to recognize Jerry for his act of service.

“PICTURE OF THE WEEK! CCISD bus driver Jerry Martin cut the grass at one of his bus stops so the students don’t have to stand in the weeds while waiting for the bus. The home is vacant and the yard is not being maintained. Three cheers for Mr. Martin!”

“I mowed that lawn because my kids have to stand there, and tall grass attracts chiggers, so I didn’t want my kids having to stand in it and get chigger bites.”

A true act of kindness and selflessness! Thanks for looking out for the children, Mr. Martin!
