The fundraiser was established by Andy Mitchell, who gave Korva a ride to work one day and was impressed by Korva's work ethic. Mitchell set up a donation box at a local restaurant, and the proceeds allowed the group to purchase a Toyota Camry for Korva.

In addition to the car, donations cover a year’s worth of insurance, two years of oil changes and a $500 gas card, The Associated Press reported.
