Ryan Cox has been paying for the order behind him in the drive-thru line at Starbucks for some time now. A few dollars here. A few dollars there. Each time to secretly make someone’s day a little bit better.
This time he came out of hiding to pay it forward for children at a local elementary school whose parents were delinquent on their lunch payments.
Inspired by a friend, Ryan went to Lakeside Elementary with a plan to pay off overdue lunch accounts for families who’d fallen on hard times — not just a few, but for the entire school. He reached out on social media asking people to join him to cover the full amount of $1200. He collected a thousand dollars in a few days.
