Charity organisation Dandelions WA have praised an “extraordinary” truck driver who goes above and beyond to help them out.
Dandelions volunteers have been heading to Daimler Trucks Perth loaded with donations of school backpacks twice a week for the past month.
When they get there, they are greeted by truckie Brandon Dutton, who has worked for Daimler for almost ten years.
Dutton then packs up the backpacks and delivers them to regional WA, emailing the tracking numbers to Dandelion so they can see they have arrived safely.
A spokesperson for Dandelion said: “Every trip we are met by Brandon from Spare Parts, who is waiting with pallets at the ready.
“We are always greeted with a smile and an eagerness to help.
“He is an extraordinary human being who represents Daimler with pride and a huge kind heart.”
They thanked Brandon for his help and support and said he is “Dandelions’ champion”.
Dutton told Big Rigs that he really enjoys being able to do some good as part of his job.
“Daimler organises the freight for Dandelions, and we pay for it as well.
“I like being able to help out with the charity work.
“It adds more work to an already large workload but it’s definitely worth it, I get great satisfaction from it.”
Each year Dandelions WA assists hundreds of children in need by supplying them with school backpacks complete with stationery, a lunch box, a water bottle, a hat and toiletries.
The backpacks are distributed throughout Western Australia in time for the beginning of the 2024 school year.
