TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- The local man who made headlines after a viral video showed him getting ready for a job interview with help from a Tallahassee police officer is continuing to receive support from the department and the community.

The Tallahassee Police Department says Phil March is doing great and has since started his new job at McDonald's.

On Friday, TPD said they had gotten March a bus pass valid through September 7, and had received offers from the community to purchase another one for him when the time comes.

Officer Carlson, the officer seen helping March in the viral video, also gifted March a brand new shave kit.

TPD says they are in contact with March several times a week and are continuing to follow his inspirational journey to success.

Police also thanked the community for their kindness and continued willingness to lend March a helping hand.
