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.
