Customers buy every single doughnut at local Seal Beach doughnut shop in Orange County, California so that the owner the community has come to love can be with his sick wife.
Chhan and his wife, Stella, have owned Donut City for three decades. The couple came to Orange County as refugees from Cambodia in 1979. Since then, they have worked side by side every single morning to serve locals delicious doughnuts at their loved doughnut shop – until recently.
Customers who have dearly missed Stella Chhan’s presence behind the counter serving them doughnuts every morning were shocked to discover that she had suffered from a terrible aneurysm. Thank God, she’s survived, but has become weak and in rehab, and her soulmate, John Chhan rushes home every day to be with her as soon as the shop sells out of doughnuts.
John Chhan has declined customers’ requests to to set up a GoFundMe account for the couple, saying he really just wants more time with his wife. So, instead, local customers have decided to help Donut City sell out early every single day so that he can return to the rehabilitation center where she is recovering.
“She can talk, she can write,” Chhan said to local press of his wife’s progress. “Right now she’s trying to start…eat something.”
His name is Dalton Shaffer and he drove from Battle Creek, Michigan to Indianapolis, Indiana (450 miles round trip) to deliver a pizza from a pizza place in Michigan that doesn’t even deliver.
“I am beyond overwhelmed and humbled by this act of genuine kindness. Dalton brought our family so much joy – and the best pizza in the world – at a really difficult time. While ‘thank you’ hardly seems adequate – from the bottom of my heart, thank you, Dalton from Steve’s Pizza in Battle Creek, MI for making your epic middle of the night pizza delivery!” Julie Morgan wrote on Facebook, posting a photo of two slices of pizza.
For Julie Morgan and Rich Morgan of Indianapolis, it was the nice gesture that came with two pizzas delivered from their favorite pizzeria soon after they learned that Rich would enter hospice care, that made their day.
Though money was tight, Rich would bring home a pizza from Steve’s Pizza every payday, she said.
The couple planned to getaway to Michigan and to grab some of their favorite pizza from Steve’s Pizza in Battle Creek was interrupted by a trip to the ICU, where they learned Rich’s battle with cancer was coming to an end, she wrote on Facebook.
