We caught up with Timothy Glover, who says he’s a company coach by day and Dash Gordon by night.
“I started wearing the costume and putting myself out there and delivering and it went haywire,” Glover said. “People just love it.”
The costume was inspired by the superhero The Flash.
Glover’s Dash character came about after his wife had health problems. The couple figured a vacation was just what they needed, so to earn some extra cash, Glover took a second job as a door dash driver. After just a few shifts, he realized he could take the gig to a whole new level. Now he said it’s his community that has kept him going over the past few months.
“That’s really catchy,” Glover recalled, “but I said, you know what — let’s forget the tips. Let’s forget the extra funds Dash Gordon can earn. What can Dash Gordon do for his community? ?”
Glover explained: “The first person to reach out was a young single mom and she said, ‘Look, I need some help… I’m embarrassed. Year old.'”
That’s when Dash stepped into action.
“I got donations from my neighborhood and I went and delivered her diapers and wipes and some extra money to get her through the weekend and then I did it for another young lady too,” Glover said.
The response was overwhelming, as a check of Glover’s social media accounts shows.
His Facebook page is flooded with photos and videos of Dash Gordon sightings. Residents he serves in and around League City have also found him on social media.
The city of League City even created a video of Dash Gordon doing what he does best — performing, smiling, and eating on the fly.
“I plan to visit the children’s hospitals and stuff like that and just put a smile on people’s faces,” Glover added. “We live in crazy times.”
As for the family vacation they originally planned, Glover says they’ve finally made their plans and you never know if Dash will show up.
