An 80-year-old janitor went back to work to cover expenses, and now students are trying to help him afford retirement.
Mr. James returned to work at Callisburg High School in Texas last month after his monthly rent went up by $400. To support him, students started a GoFundMe called "Getting Mr. James out of this school."
Student Greyson Thurman is organizing the effort, and over $200,000 has been raised. The initial goal was $10,000. It started when they posted a Tiktok video of him at work that went viral.
"Nobody deserves to work their whole life," Thurman said. "They deserve to enjoy everything."
