Customers Rally To Help Doughnut Shop Owner Spend More Time With Sick Wife

In the town of Seal Beach, CA a little shop stands with the words Donut City. It’s bright yellow sign and big black letters show the sweet simplicity of the goodies inside. It is here where the locals are buying out pastries in an effort to support the owners in their time of need.

John and Stella Chan own the quaint little store and work together every day serving donuts, coffee, and tea. They have been a staple in the area for over 29 years. Recently, his wife had an unexpected medical crisis in October. She has been slowly recovering at a local facility.

When the news got out, many of the regular shoppers started buying items by the box, 12 donuts per sale. By late morning, all of the pastries are usually gone. The loving gesture by customers makes it possible to close the store early and let John be next to his wife.

“The sooner we can get him home and get support for her, I think the better it is for both of them and the community,” customer Charlie Dickinson shared with ABC 7.

“It’s a blessing really, we need more people like that, [people] that just help everybody. Help in whatever need they had.” Todd Gryzwana said in an interview.

Not only is this act of kindness something special for the couple, but one woman feels that it’s a gift to the community as well.

“This is like something that will warm your heart, you know. It’s unfortunate what happened to his wife but I really believe something like this, bringing community together is just I don’t know, something we really need right now.”

John is very grateful and recognizes the amazing people he serves. “I feel very warm. I just say thank you very much.”
