A KFC employee received a sum of $25,000 from a regular customer who patronizes the restaurant. The 70-year-old woman worked in KFC for almost 50 years and it is no doubt she has been one of the favorite workers of customers.
When a Toronto fan decided to appreciate this woman by raising a sum of $25,000, little did we know that Jason Schweitzer had established a long-time relationship with this KFC employee.
He first met Emilia, the 70-year-old KFC employee when he and his mom always stopped in for a weekly Sunday meal.

Schweitzer was around when a rude customer insulted Emilia and she reacted with her usual good-natured aplomb. Schweitzer thought to himself how someone could still be working there for so long. Working here means you have to deal with different kinds of people, bother the good and the bad.
After that incident, Schweitzer thought about how he could honor the woman who’d been serving up her own patented brand of personalized customer service to the community for nearly 50 years.
Schweitzer created a GoFundMe on behalf of Emilia to provide for expenses like rent, transportation, PPE, rent, and other necessities as well as a financial cushion for her future. People started donating money to help Emilia and so far, a sum of $25,000 has been raised.
