The owner of the restaurant identified as Moussa Salloukh expressed gratitude to the kind man, saying the gesture was huge.
He told CNN:
"There was a lot of tears, I'm tearing up now talking about it. Your restaurant staff becomes your family and everyone cares about each other. I've been staying out of the kitchen to give employees hours to get through and put gifts under the tree for their kids, so this was so huge for us."
The pandemic made it impossible for some of the employees to buy a Christmas tree or presents for their family but the kind gesture from the stranger gave them the financial wherewithal to get those items.
