GOOD NEWS Restaurant's Offer of Free Thanksgiving Meal Goes Viral
A Michigan restaurant's offer of a free meal to those who are homeless or "home alone" on Thanksgiving is going viral.
The owner of George's Senate & Coney Island in Northville actually makes the offer every year.
But the sign in the window was shared on social media this week, bringing the eatery national attention.
"It makes my heart feel good to do it, and help a little bit," owner George Dimopoulos, who was homeless at one time in his life, told WILX-TV.
The station reported:
George came to the United States at the age of 23 after growing up in Greece. He lived on a farm with seven brothers and sisters, and his parents couldn't afford to send him to school. He left home at the age of 12 and went to Athens, where he was homeless for a time, and depended on the kindness of others to give him food.
Dimopoulos said dozens of people show up each Thanksgiving to take him up on the offer and that he hopes even more will come by this year.
