A great story about a great letter carrier:
GRANADA HILLS, LOS ANGELES KABC — Kevin Wonten wanted to pay it forward to his long-time friend Frank Betancourt. Both men are veteran letter carriers with the United State Postal Service.
Betancourt was raised in Boyle Heights with the help of welfare. He’s gone on to put three kids through college: Cecilia at UCLA, Ruben at Harvey Mudd, and now Sarah at Cal State Northridge.
But his 25-year-old daughter Rachel has a debilitating form of cerebral palsy.
Yet Betancourt somehow still finds time to go way above and beyond for those on his route. When Joyce Neil’s sink broke, Betancourt replaced it. He’s helped turn her water on, replaced her hot water heater and even built a wall in her backyard, all on his own time.
