CALIFORNIA — Fannie Randle has been working as a housekeeper at a sorority house at the University of Southern California for 24 years.
Recently, she’s been driving to work in an old car held together with duct tape — she’s been saving two years for a down payment on a new car.
So to show their appreciation for all of her hard work, the Gamma Phi Beta sorority decided to give her the surprise of a lifetime.
Annenbert TV News reports that sorority president Alicia Jewell, with the help of her sorority sisters, set up a GoFundMe account to raise money for a new car.
“Her car, currently, it just shouldn’t have to be like that. So I was just like, ‘You know what, she has so many alumni and so many girls that love her so let’s just get her a car!’ Jewell told ATVN.
And at a dinner last week, Jewell presented Randle with the surprise of a lifetime — a check worth $21,000. All the money was raised in less than a month.
Randle screamed and waved her hands, hugging the girls in appreciation.
She said she’s not sure what kind of car she’ll buy — perhaps a Honda.
“They mean everything to me,” she told ATVN. “They are wonderful, wonderful girls.”
