A school trip to a local restaurant turned into an emotional and wonderful experience for a group of students with autism this month, thanks to the kindness of a stranger.

The anonymous patron, who often dines in the Jose Tejas restaurant, was moved by the sight of 26 kids with the 21 staff members celebrating Cinco de Mayo and Teacher Appreciation Day.

The grandmother of a special needs child, she paid for their entire bill totaling $485.

Back at school, the group put together a heartfelt thank you card in the hopes that it would reach her. They wrote:

“There are no words to express how touched and grateful we are to you.  Your act of generosity will forever be embedded in our hearts.”
