What is it about Chick-fil-a customers?

Eddie is homeless. He and his dog Socks are regulars at a Chick-fil-a in Corpus Christi, Texas. Eddie never asks the restaurant for a handout. He only orders water and a few nuggets for his dog. This month, three local teens, Ryan Cook, Joshua Mechell and Albert Montiel were eating at the restaurant when they noticed Eddie and Socks. Eddie was quietly crying as he spread change on the table in front of him to see if he could afford a meal. The teens also noticed a well-worn Bible on his table, and that inspired them to pool their money and buy him gift cards.

But that's not all. They asked Eddie to wait while they went next door to Dick's Sporting Goods and bought him a new coat, some shirts, a first-aid kit and a winter hat. Chick-fil-a donated a few items plus $20 toward their purchases. Eddie said he got nothing for Christmas, so they told him to think of these as belated Christmas gifts. The teens kept in touch with Eddie, and got him a hotel room and a meal on Sunday, February 5, so he and Socks could watch the Super Bowl.
