Although the devastation of Hurricane Harvey continues to make itself felt, there has been one silver lining to this cloud - the way that residents, volunteers, and responders have all come together to support their communities.
Among those going above and beyond are the owners of Sake Sushi Bar and Lounge in Port Arthur, Texas.
Kieth Nguyen took to Facebook recently to commend his father, Phe Nguyen, and his uncle, Binh Nguyen - the owners of the restaurant - for working non-stop to provide delicious meals to people who are running out of food.
"My dad and uncle Binh own a restaurant in Southeast Texas and they were also affected by Harvey but the media doesn’t cover it," said Keith on Facebook. "Today them, their staff and volunteers helped create over 1,000 meals for victims, first responders, and other volunteers."
Although the humble restaurant owners aren't looking for any kind of pat on the back for their efforts, Keith still felt they at least deserved a shout-out.
"My dad and uncle are both very humble about it but I believe they at least deserve recognition and appreciation for everything that they do," Keith wrote. "Their restaurant is Sake Sushi Bar and Lounge in Port Arthur, TX. If you’re ever in the area you should stop by and support these hard working men, or even share their good deed on Facebook. They deserve it."
Keith got his wish, because the post was shared on Facebook more than 244,000 times from his personal page alone. It was also picked up by various national media outlets.
A lot of people have been leaving positive comments on social media:
"It takes people like this to prove to all America that we have good, kind-hearted people everywhere! Thanks and God bless!" said one commenter.
Another user added, "God bless Binh Nguyen and Phe Nguyen for their generosity, everyone should look up the Sake Sushi Bar and Lounge when in Port Arthur, TX!!!!"
According to an interview with the Beaumont Enterprise, the brothers learned their work ethic and sense of giving back to their community from their father. "We want our restaurant to be a fun community experience that appeals to families and friends on any day of the week," said Phe.
I have a feeling this restaurant will be a staple of the community from here on out if it isn't already. Be sure to SHARE this with your family and friends.
