Alabama mail carrier surprises birthday boy with a gift
OPELIKA, Ala. — Chip Matthews loves picking up the mail. And he loves it even more now.
For his sixth birthday, mail carrier Tawanna Purter surprised him with a gift: a dollar bill and four quarters — a small fortune at his age. Chip has treasured the money and is saving up to buy a Spider-Man action figure.
His mom, Bonnie, says the kind gesture also gave the Opelika, Alabama, family hope during the pandemic when she lost her job as a school counselor.
