Waffle House waitress sees man struggling to cut food and melts hearts with ‘act of kindness’

Few people will take the time to help out another person, especially if you’re busy doing ten things at once and you need to do it fast.
At Waffle House in La Marque, Texas, an employee named Evoni Williams was doing her job.

It was very busy at the diner and she was attending to a lot of customers when she noticed a particular man, sitting at the counter.

This man is Adrian Charpentier.
He is a Waffle House regular and, on this particular day, Adrian had trouble cutting his food. He said he had no coordination and strength in his hands.

Without hesitation, Evoni leaned over, grabbed his fork, and cut up his ham.


A woman named Laura Wolf was sitting in a booth behind Adrian and saw the entire exchange.
“It touched me,” Laura said. “Because she’s so young. I have four kids who would’ve done the same thing, but you just don’t always see something like this.”

She took a photo of Adrian and Evoni and posted it on her Facebook wall.
Laura said she wished more people like us could be like Evoni, who was ready to offer a helping hand to those who needed it.

“It was so busy in here, and she actually took the time to stop and hear what he had to say instead of walking past him. That just meant something to me,” Laura mentioned.

Evoni had no idea Laura took the photo and found out about it through her friends.
Her friends saw Laura’s post and tagged Evoni. The post blew up and was shared more than 73,000 times. Because it went viral, it reached the office of Mayor Bobby Hocking.


Mayor Hocking felt compelled to do something for Evoni.

The first thing he did was to declare March 8 as Evoni William’s Day. Plus, Texas Southern University President Austin A. Lane reached out to give Evoni a $16,000 scholarship to attend their university.

Evoni had started working at The Waffle House so she could save for college.
It’s safe to say that she has definitely earned her money to study. Evoni earned it for an act that she would do for anyone who needed help.

“That’s just me,” Evoni explained. “It came from the heart. I would do it any other time, not just this time.”

When Mayor Hocking presented Evoni with Evoni Williams’ day declaration and the scholarship check, Evoni just broke down in tears.

She could not believe this was happening to her. Mayor Hocking believes she deserved it.
“It’s always refreshing in this day and age to see the younger generation helping the older generation,” Mayor Hocking shared. “Because our young generation is not always cast in the best light. It never gets old seeing young people help.”

For Evoni, this wasn’t one time act of kindness. She does it all the time.[/imgsrc]

Congratulations, Evoni!
Keep doing what you’re doing and help people every chance you get.
