Mark Meadows, the owner of a Chick-fil-A, is getting a lot of attention because of his actions when he didn’t even know anyone had seen.
Meadows has a close connection to Chick-fil-A founder Truett Cathy himself. Cathy was the great uncle to Meadows’ wife. His grandmother-in-law is influential in many of the recipes still used by Chick-fil-A.
But the real story is what Mark Meadows did for a homeless man earlier this week..
“We have people walk in on occasion that need some help. I could tell he needed some help,” said Meadows.
Meadows gave a homeless man who came into his store a free meal, but he didn’t stop there.
“I noticed he was wringing his hands and noticed he didn’t have gloves. I said ‘you don’t have any gloves, he said ‘no’. I said you need some gloves. On the table next to me I had the gloves that i had gave to him. He was very hesitant I said ‘no, you need gloves, I can get some more, it’s not a big deal.”
The man left, but before he left, this act was posted on Facebook by Andrea Stoker. Stoker captured an image of Meadows giving the man his gloves.
Stoker was with her son at the time. She wrote “There is still so much good in this world and I’m so grateful that Bryson saw it all unfold”.
“Timing in life is very important, and if he had been five minutes later, I wouldn’t have been in here. If Andrea had not been where she was, this wouldn’t have taken place.”
Meadows says acts like this publicized one happen several times each week at his restaurant. They just doesn’t get the attention and that’s alright by him
“I did what anyone should do.”
