This week’s feel good story feature goes to Josette Duran, a mom from Albquerque, New Mexico, who has been packing her son two lunches for school since the start of the school year! It was during the first week of school that her son noticed a boy in his class sitting alone everyday at lunch with nothing more than a fruit cup to eat.
Since then Josette decided to not only make lunches for him each day but even personalize them with little notes. When the boy’s mom found out she offered to pay Josette back, but of course she refused…as it turns out Josette and her son were actually homeless just a few years ago. Josette also coaches the school’s volleyball team. They held a fundraiser this year and raised $400, which was then donated back to pay off any outstanding accounts at the school’s lunch program. In her words, “now everyone can eat”.
