Sanitation Worker Drops Off 'Secret Santa' Gift for Child Who Waves to Him on His Rounds

Saul Luera’s two-year-old son Aiden had an unexpected present delivered on Christmas Eve by a friendly Houston sanitation worker.

Luera shared a video on Facebook of a sanitation worker dropping off a gift at their home, explaining that every trash day, little Aiden “gets up and goes outside to see the garbage truck and waves at the garbage man. Every trash day without a miss.”

Luera said he was grateful for the man’s kindness, writing, “thank you for this gift you left my little one. God bless you”.

According to local reports, the mystery Santa was Jose Pleites, an employee of WCA Waste Corporation, who has worked with the company for about eight years. Credit: Saul Luera via Storyful
