Christmas came early this year for residents at a shelter in Greensboro, N.C.
Back in October, the Salvation Army received a call from a man, who asked to remain anonymous, telling them that his son had canceled his December 1st wedding.
Rather than calling the whole thing off, the man wanted to donate the the reserved venue (a swanky hotel ballroom) and 90 meals to the shelter.
Eighty-four of the shelter's residents and six staff members enjoyed the special meal together last Saturday night -- all thanks to a cancelled wedding and one man's charitable act.
And his kindness didn't stop at Chicken Cordon Bleus -- after meeting with executive director Jackie Lucas at the shelter, the man decided to do more. He inspired members of his church to get involved, and together they collected toiletries and supplies for the residents, and bought pillows and stuffed animals for the children.
Such a heartwarming story of how one person can make a difference and inspire others to get involved.
