Life threatening cold hit the area yesterday, and the employees of Burlington’s Taco Bell went out of their way to see to it that one of their regulars, who happens to be homeless, had a warm place to stay.
Yesterday evening the owner of the Quality Inn in Burlington, Dan Patel, received a phone call…
“He didn’t have anything. The manager knows me very well, as a business person. She told me all the employees at Taco Bell wanted to contribute something to pay for a hotel room. I said no, buy him food and give him something to eat, I will take care of the room.”
With frigid temps expected again tonight, Patel says he’d gladly do it again for the man.
Taco Bell’s corporate Twitter account has even chimed in…
@1490KBUR Love this.
