A young man, Derrick Walton has become a philanthropist after he decided to open an eatery joint where the less privileged who are homeless can come and dine for free.
The young revealed he got inspired to offer this humanitarian service to people after he himself almost went through the same thing in life. He said his life changed when a restaurant manager believed in him well enough to offer him a job.
On how he landed the job, he said: “Just before I was going to give up, on that 10th day, and I’ll never forget it, I went to a Greek restaurant in downtown Detroit.
I met with a gentleman, I told him, ‘Look I’ve made a lot of poor choices and decisions in my life.’ I said, ‘I’m not looking for a handout,’ I said, ‘but if you give me an opportunity or a chance, I won’t let you down. I’m a great cook’.”
On each Monday, Derrick would close his shop to the paying public so the homeless can have a variety of free food.
Volunteers have since joined in his kind gesture and they always weekly organise vehicles to transport the homeless to the restaurant.
