Josette Duran did not know why her son kept asking her to pack two lunches. Josette’s son, Dylan, finally told his mother that the extra lunch for his friend. Dylan’s friend never had enough money for lunch. Josette found out that the child’s mother was single and had recently lost a job. Josette knows what it is like to be homeless, so she was touched by her son’s gesture.
A few years ago, Josette and Dylan were struggling. They lived in a car and had to wash in public bathrooms. There were also times when Dylan and Josette did not have enough to eat.
The boy’s mother found out what Dylan was doing for her son and decided to reach out to Josette. The two mothers met in the principal’s officer. The mother had recently gotten a job and decided to give Josette some money.
However, Josette did not want to accept the money. She had a better idea. Josette, who coaches a girl’s volleyball team, decided to help her team raise over $400. She used the money to pay off the past due balances for the kids who owed lunch money. Josette shared her story in a Facebook video that has gone viral. She stated that she is happy that every child in the school can now eat lunch.
