This 7-year-old works at McDonald's

Trenton Gardner of Bicknell Indiana is not your average 7-year-old. When he saw the Toys for Tots bins before Christmas, he asked his mother what they were for. She explained that not all families have the money for Christmas toys, and that made Trenton upset and sad. He decided to do something about it. He asked his grandfather to take him to McDonald's so he could get a job.

Trenton's parents are proud of his kind heart and his concern for others, but the manager of McDonald's was obviously reluctant to have a 7-year-old employee. When he was told he was too young for a job, Trenton burst into tears. He kept at it, asking repeatedly to meet with the manager and asking for a job. His persistence paid off.

Trenton is now an honorary employee, wiping tables for $1. The money he earns when added to the donations of toys by McDonald's has given many kids in that Indiana town a wonderful holiday season.
