Students at Hoover High School in San Diego surprised the woman they love who keeps them all fed at school with a new car. Debra Davis is a food service worker who’s driven an old 1976 Chevy Malibu to and from school every day, but the teens gave her a shiny white Mazda with the dings and dents removed by the school’s auto body technician program.
In addition to her job at the school, Davis also volunteers at nursing homes and serves meals to homeless people and because of her volunteer work, the charities Recycled Rides and Kids for Peace, along with State Farm, gave her a stolen vehicle that was recovered and refurbished. She’s very grateful for her new ride and that the students helped make it happen.
"Debbie comes to campus every single day with a smile on her face, ready to take on the day and serve our students," Hoover Principal James Babineau says. "So, to see this gift that so many people have been a part of in making it happen is a wonderful thing."
Times have been tough for Tina Bebout and her family this year. They lost their home to Hurricane Harvey and then got FEMA money for a hotel, but that money stopped Friday and the mother of four wasn’t sure where they were going to go next. So in an act of desperation, she called the police and asked them to take her children.
Tina and her husband, John, didn’t want to lose their kids, but they didn’t know what else to do. She says the situation was heartbreaking, but minutes after calling for help, two Galveston police officers showed up and instead of taking her kids, they brought food, drinks, and stuffed animals for the kiddos.
The officers also paid $250 to put the family in a new hotel and have helped the family of six find a shelter where they can stay for the next three months. "I felt like I just had two angels that were sent to me to help my kids," Bebout says. "These two men kept a family together, and they didn't have to do what they did, but they did.”

Delilah Cassidy was trying to check into her American Airlines flight when they asked her to pay $50 for oversized carry-on luggage. But they don’t take cash and all her cards were being declined because she just returned from Europe and her bank didn’t know she was back in the U.S., so she was stuck until a kind stranger stepped up and paid the fee for her.
Cassidy shared the story on Twitter, explaining how the man she calls “an angel” helped her get on that flight home. “My heart is so happy,” she writes. “There are good people in this world.” But then she found out who that angel is - Jermaine Gresham, a player for the Arizona Cardinals. She tweeted a selfie with Gresham after realizing that her angel is an NFL player.
