A Florida high school student renovates and donates a trailer to provide a place to live for someone who may have lost their home due to the pandemic. According to WPTV, Oakbridge Academy senior Mia Bonutti just finished up her year-long project renovating a 30-foot long camper to donate to someone in need. The West Palm Beach teen hopes her gift will make a difference in someone’s life.

“The idea actually started my sophomore year when I came up with the idea during quarantine,” Bonutti recalls. “And then it kind of became a reality starting junior year.” Once she got the camper, it took her several months just to clean it out before she could even start the renovation. Bonutti did the project as part of an independent study program through her school. “I really want to make a space for someone who has lost everything and have them have a house even if it is temporary,” she says.

Bonutti plans to donate the trailer to Veteran Car Donations this weekend. When asked what message she has for the trailer’s new owner, she says, “Welcome home, and I am so happy that I am able to give you something to live in.”
