Restaurant Owner Pays if Forward, Offers Free Thanksgiving Meals for Lonely Patrons

NORTHVILLE, MI (WTXF)- A restaurant in Michigan is looking to pay it forward come Thanksgiving Day, and the gesture has already gone viral.

A Reddit user posted a photo of a sign on the window at George's Senate Coney Island Restaurant.

The sign reads:

George's Thanksgiving Day Dinner: If anyone is alone, come east with us for free! All day, Thurs. November 26 th ."

The owner of the restaurant, George, told WLIX that he had moved to Athens, Greece when he was a young boy. For a while, he himself was homeless and alone, depending on the kindness of others.

This year, he hopes to pay that kindness forward to people in his town.
