Over 2,500 people from around the world have contributed to a fundraising account for a local pizza delivery driver. Close to $30,000 has been raised for Jarrid Tansey, the 23-year-old driver for Palace Pizza in Dartmouth seen in a viral video calmly taking verbal abuse from workers in a Westport car dealership.

New Bedford Mayor Jon Mitchell saw the video, and had a few words of advice for the employees of F&R Auto Sales.

Mitchell contributed $20 to the GoFundMe account to benefit Tansey.

Mitchell spoke with Tansey over the phone Friday. He says Tansey plans to put the money towards his toddler son's college education.
