A Generous Gift

back to Stories

“I was at a register ringing in customers and a young man came in for lunch. After he ordered, I explained the program and I gave him his suggested donation. He said, “Round it up to $100.” I thought he didn’t hear or did not understand, so I said, “Are you sure? Do you understand what suggested donation means?” He said he did and he wanted to leave extra today to help others eat. I was so excited that it took me 3 times to get the amount to $100 on the register! He said he couldn’t wait to tell his wife about this place! We thank him for making a difference in our community cafe!”
