"Literally the best feeling ever," Collett said. "I was shocked and happy and like, I'm so emotional. I started crying."

Collett has a 3-year-old son and works two jobs to support her family. She works at Century Bank during the week and spends the weekends at the restaurant.

"Someone said they saw a similar thing on Facebook and they wanted to do it for someone in need," general manager Kayla Currie said.
