Customers Buy Donut Shop Owner’s Treats By The Dozen Every Morning So He Can Spend More Time With His Sick Wife ❤️

In a small city in California, a doughnut shop has been selling out every morning, and it’s not just because the donuts taste so good. Customers have been buying all the donuts to allow the owner to close early and spend time with his wife.

A few weeks ago, the owners of Donut City in Seal Beach, California, had a medical emergency. Stella Chhan suffered an aneurysm and needed to recover in a nursing home. Her husband, John, wanted to spend more time with his wife but, as they were the sole owners and operators of the local donut shop, it was difficult to get time away.

Locals inquired about the missing Stella and he explained her condition and his situation. One customer, Dawn Caviola, posted about it on the social site Nextdoor, where she suggested they buy out the stock of donuts, allowing Mr. Chhan to close early and spend time with his recovering wife.

Every morning for the last week and a half, people have lined up at the door when it opens at 4:30 in the morning. Before afternoon, the stock is gone, sometimes as early as 7:30 a.m. This allows Mr. Chhan to close the shop for the day and be with his wife.

The story has touched people’s hearts.

Some even wanted to contribute and buy donuts from far away.

Though not everyone sees this as a positive story.

The community has been very supportive of the couple, who have run the local Donut City for nearly three decades. While someone suggested they could set up a GoFundMe page for the couple, the Chhans declined. They don’t want money, just more time to spend together.
