NORTHVILLE, Mich. – A restaurant near Detroit is getting attention after a sign posted on its door went viral.

The sign outside of George’s Senate Coney Island restaurant in Northville, Mich., reads: “George’s Thanksgiving Day Dinner. If anyone is home alone, Come eat with us for free!”

The owner says he’s been hosting the free dinner for 10 years now.

He says he can remember a time when he had nothing and felt alone, so he wanted to do something to give back.
