A group of employees at a local restaurant decided to help one of their own by reuniting her with her family.

Mary Keulana- Riotutar came to Laredo on Volleyball scholarship at LCC and has not seen her family members in about six years.

Since then Riotutar has been working at Cheddars to sustain herself and her family.

Friends at the restaurant decided to surprise her with a plane ticket, so that Mary could finally travel back to Hawaii to see her mother and sister.

Since then the employee’s act of kindness has gone viral and gathered 1.9K views on social media.

Riotutar says, “It was just so amazing and every time I want to talk about it, I want to cry, because who is going to do that for a random person. I barely knew them for like a like year so it's like who's going to do that? It's very hearth felt and I haven't seen my mom in such a long time, and it's just amazing.”

Mary says she hopes to travel to finally reunite with her mom in June or May.
