Debra is more to those students than just a lunch lady.

“I feed the kids, I prepare the food, I talk to them, I stop them from fighting. They don’t cuss. They have to respect, and they call me ‘Aunt Debbie,'" Debra explained during an interview. Debra extends her kindness far beyond the lunch room, as well.

During her spare time, Debra volunteers in nursing homes and helps give food to the homeless.

Unfortunately, the car that Debra was using to help all of these people was kind of falling apart. Everyone that knew Debra knew that her car was constantly giving her trouble, but she still loved her car no matter what. “I call her, Transformer. She is my 1976 Chevy Malibu,” she said.
