The city of La Marque, Texas, proclaimed March 8, 2018, Evoni “Nini” Williams Day in the city after seeing her act of kindness that went viral on Facebook this week.
Earlier this week, Waffle House customer Laura Wolf snapped a photo of Williams cutting up food for a partially disabled man during a busy shift at the restaurant.
The photo went viral, with 97,000 reactions and nearly 46,000 shares. ….
Williams couldn’t stop the tears as Texas Southern University handed her an oversized check for $16,000.
A representative for the university said, “Your act of kindness is exactly the kind of student we want at Texas Southern University. “
“That’s just me,” Williams said of the photo. “It came from the heart. I would do it any other time, not just this time.”
She added, “All I know is we were busy. And all he asked was, ‘I don’t have functioning in my hands, can you cut (my ham) for me? It would be easier for me.’ I was like, sure, I stopped. I had food on the board to pick up. They were calling my name. I stepped away, came back and finished.”
