According to the New York Daily News, Jack Swanson heard what happened and dumped out his piggy bank to help. With the support of his mom, Laura, he donated $20-the entirety of his savings-to the center.
"It's disgusting, it's gross. It doesn't matter what you believe, or I believe, or he believes, or anybody believes, all faith is important," Laura Swanson said.
Jack’s small gestured didn’t go unnoticed. Mosque leaders expressed their gratitude for what he had done. "Jack's $20 are worth $20 million to us because it's the thought that counts," board member Faisal Naeem told ABC News.
No one has been charged for the incident.
