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."
