Ebony Johnson works at a Dunkin’ drive-thru in Cincinnati where Suzanne Burke is a regular customer. The two became friends about three years ago.
Recently, Burke noticed her favorite employee was not at work for a few weeks. She learned that Ebony and her family were evicted from their home.
“When she experienced this hardship, I just wanted to see if I could help her,” Burke told WCPO.
Burke teamed up with nonprofit organizations and partnered with a staging designer to surprise Ebony with a fully furnished home she can call her own — just in time for Christmas.
“The Lord really looked out for me because I kept praying and saying ‘can I be at home before Christmas?’,” Ebony told the news station.
