Burger King employee Matthew Resendez was at work going about his business when a homeless man entered the restaurant and approached him. The homeless man only had 50 cents on him, so he quietly asked Matthew what he could be able to purchase with such a little amount of money.
When Matthew heard the man’s question, he instantly knew he had to help this poor man. In response Matthew asked the homeless man what he would order if money wasn’t a concern at the moment.
The homeless man told him, then Matthew proceeded to not only pay for his meal, but also sat down with him so he wouldn’t have to eat alone.
Matthew’s mom, Michelle Resendez, took to Facebook to share with everyone her “proud mom moment”, relaying the story of her son’s act of kindness.
“Proud mom moment! Matthew worked this evening and a homeless gentlemen walked in the restaurant with .50 cents and asked if there was anything on the menu he could buy. Matthew asked him what he would order if he could and the man said anything would help his hunger pains.
So Matthew rung him up for a hearty meal and then used his own debit card to pay for the mans meal. He handed him the receipt and told him to relax and take a seat. The story could end there and It would be a happy ending, but apparently a women watched my son during his random act of kindness.
Not only did she write the company to let them know about the caring employee they had working for them, she also rewarded my son with a very generous tip! So proud to be his mom and I can pat myself on the back knowing that I’ve played a part in raising this big hearted young man.” The proud mom wrote.
This kind young man’s heart is truly full of compassion and kindness!
