UPS drivers surprise toddler with his own, mini delivery truck

A toddler has received his own, mini UPS truck from the delivery drivers he waves to each day.

Marco Elizondo, 2, was surprised with the gift in early March, though his love for the big, brown trucks started around Christmas when he’d see them drive by his California home, mom Clarissa Alcazar told “GMA.”

“He was in the stroller and was like ‘Wow!’ His whole world came to life,” said Alcazar, a resident of Chula Vista.

Alcazar said that after she noticed Marco’s fondness for UPS, she would take him on jogs to its nearby facility.

Thornberry and his team gave Marco’s truck a special “serial number” of 5218, which is Marco’s birthdate.

“It was just out of the kindness of their hearts … seeing how committed we were to going up there every day,” Alcazar said.
