For 28th year, man hosts Thanksgiving dinner for strangers

Scott Macaulay isnt into self-promotion. Hes never sought out media coverage. In fact, he likes it that most of the people he feeds each Thanksgiving dont know his name.

On Thursday, for the 28th time, the Massachusetts man is preparing a full turkey dinner for a whole bunch of people hes never met. His 70 or so guests elderly people, cancer patients, AA members, low-income people, at-risk teens, recently divorced people, widowed people and others have one detail in common: Without Macaulay, theyd be alone on Thanksgiving.

Eh, what I do isnt a big deal, really, the self-effacing 52-year-old told TODAY.com. I put some birds in the oven, boil some mashed potatoes.

I mean, cmon. Im a dumb dodo bird who fixes vacuum cleaners for a living. Ive got nothing to offer except time, and some birds I can get for 69 cents a pound. I just dont want people to be stuck at home feeling rotten.

the rest here

what a lovely thing for him to do
