LA PLATA, Md. — A restaurant in Maryland is forgoing dinner with family in the comfort of home to serve a feast to “Thanksgiving orphans”
"Thanksgiving orphans" are those who have nowhere to go; no friends or family to visit for the holiday, WRC reported.
- Arrests made in violent robberies of Asian-owned businesses
- Worker killed after woman drives onto sidewalk on busy road, police say
- High school girls basketball coach charged with sexual assault
But Galazio Restaurant, in La Plata, Maryland, will open its doors with the help of volunteers to serve dinner to those who can't travel home for Thanksgiving.
According to the restaurant's Facebook page, they'll even find transportation on Thursday for those who can't get there on their own.
This is the third year for the dinner at the business, which usually serves Greek food.
Last year, members of the military, executives and families made the trip to the Maryland town for a traditional Thanksgiving meal. The restaurant's owner said they even had naturalists who live in the woods join the tables of strangers who celebrated and gave thanks as friends. They also hosted homeless guests last year as part of a mix of their community, WRC reported.
