Father Fixes Broken Bleachers in Utica, Gets FrogFest Tickets For Selfless Act
One man, a few tools and a little extra time can make all the difference. Jonathan Hare's random act of kindness is not only making kids safer at a park in Utica, it's sending him to FrogFest.
The bleachers and bench at Addison Miller park in west Utica have been broken. "Our children can be seriously injured," says Michele Baker. "But one father took his time and materials and fixed them."
That father was Jonathan Hare. "For the past 2 and a half to 3 years, the seats and step have been broken," explained Hare. "My son started playing t-ball and I noticed they were unsafe. A couple of people have tripped and one guy got hurt last year. The city said they'd fix it but never did. I do construction so I offered to fix it for them."
The works not done yet. "There's more bleachers on the other side we're going to take care of too," says Hare. "We'll get the field back together and safe for the kids."
Did Hare ask for anything in return? "Absolutely not, I like to help where I can."
McDonald's wants to show Baker 'Extra Lovin' for his random act of kindness with 2 tickets to FrogFest, June 10th at the Utica Rome Speedway, starring Chris Janson. "Really? I've never gotten anything for free in my life," says a shocked Hare.
