I need your help!!!!! Please!!! I have been served my morning Starbucks coffee by Joey, the Manager at the Katy Mills Starbucks for the last 10 years. He is the nicest, most chipper guy. He knows his customers by name, we chat football. He works hard and never lets the pressures of life show.
Joey and his family flooded in Harvey. Then he was diagnosed with Esophagus cancer. He has been paying more than a house note for his chemo treatments for a year and still he shows up everyday with a smile.
Today we were chatting and I asked him if he was ready for the holidays and he shared that the holidays were going to be tough for he and his wife to provide for their kids with their medical expenses and was waiting to get paid to purchase a gift for each of their kids and would have a Christmas celebration after they get their income tax return. He had a plan. He was not playing victim or poor me. Just sharing his journey as he worked so hard.
If you are out and about and want to grab a coffee, please stop by the Starbucks at Katy Mills and leave a tip for Joey. I know we all have pressures at the holidays but even a dollar makes a huge difference if several people contribute his family could have a nice Christmas.
If you are out out of town or can’t make it over please consider donating here.
