Stranger notices Chick-fil-A worker’s good manners, builds his family a new home



MCCLELLANVILLE, S.C. – A family has a brand-new home thanks to a stranger who befriended a young man who worked at Chick-fil-A.

“He has this sort of natural humanity that just shines through in everything he does,” Brian Smyth told WCBD.

Smyth met Shakeel Williams a year and a half ago while visiting a Chick-fil-A restaurant. They became fast friends and soon Smyth learned Williams suffered from sickle cell anemia.

Smyth also learned the family was struggling to pay Williams’ medical bills and lived in a trailer. So Smyth offered to build the family a brand new home.

The family members toured their new house for the first time a few weeks ago and were blown away by what they saw.

“It’s like a blessing,” Williams said.

His mom was touched by the act of kindness.

“I thank God first of all,” mom Tolunda Williams said. “And thank God for my son.”
