News 6, a local news channel in Central Florida recently reported on a struggling mother of four who had lost her job as a restaurant server at the start of the pandemic outbreak.
Jessica White explained that they had cut their budget in every way possible, but that their necessary bills couldn’t be pushed back any longer.
When retired couple, John and Kay Custis saw the story, they were prompted to make a difference, wondering how they could help this hurting family. They decided that instead of spending their stimulus checks on themselves, they would donate the $2,400 to White and her husband.
John Custis shared, “I’m a retired Navy officer and I’ve been through a lot. We thought why not pass it on because Jessica needs it a lot more than we do.”
When White was contacted by News 6 with the news of the couple’s generosity, she cried, saying, “I’m so thankful and thank God there are people like them. They’re so sweet, they’re such a godsend.”
