A restaurant owner is winning praise for this unbelievably kind gesture to 'lonely' customers

Proof that there are some good people in the world.

A RESTAURANT OWNER is winning praise after a sign outside his restaurant was shared on Reddit and went viral.

George Dimopolous owns George’s Senate Coney Island in Northville, Michigan.

And on Thanksgiving Day, he is offering free meals to anyone who might be at home alone.

George’s Thanksgiving Day Dinner - If anyone is home alone, come eat with us for free!

Dimopolous told WXYZ that he’s been serving Thanksgiving dinners to people for over 10 years now as a way of paying back those who looked after him when he first arrived in the United States from his native Greece.

I was young, didn’t have much food and someone gave it to me and I was appreciative of it and I remember those people.

The restaurant will open from 6.30am - 9pm and people are invited to come eat free of charge.

Maybe I don’t make money but I feel happy to do that. I do this every year and I will keep doing this as long as I live.
