It was reported that the owner of a chicken restaurant offered chicken free of charge to mothers and daughters of basic livelihood security recipients who had asked for credit because they had no money in hand, saying, “I won the event.”
On the 13th, a Facebook page that delivered news from Songtan, Pyeongtaek, Gyeonggi Province, said, “I am a mother of a child. She cried because she was so grateful,” said one informant. Informant A also posted a text message with the chicken restaurant owner and a picture of the chicken.
According to the disclosed contents, Mr. A is a recipient of basic livelihood, and on the 20th, the government subsidy, including livelihood pay, comes in. He wanted to buy chicken for his daughter, but didn’t have money right away, so he carefully requested the credit with the intention of ‘if the subsidy comes in on the 20th, I will pay 26,500 won for the chicken’.
The chicken restaurant owner willingly accepted Mr. A’s request and delivered the chicken himself. Mr. A thanked the president and handed the rice cake and hand letter.
In a handwritten letter, Mr. A said, “I am grateful these days because of the corona virus. I’m sorry I can only send you a letter. I’ll make sure to pay on the 20th. Always be healthy and happy.” “Her daughter likes chicken. she will be blessed Please keep her healthy for a long, long time.”
Afterwards, the president sent a text message to Mr. A, saying, “I received the chicken price with rice cake and a letter.” “You do not have to deposit on the 20th. already calculated. I think he gave me more than the price of chicken.” “I will keep the letter,” he said. Rather, I am grateful.” Mr. A said, “Thank you. As soon as I saw this post, tears came to my eyes,” replied the president, “No. (Chicken) is a present for my daughter. You won an event that is often held at the store, so don’t feel burdened and enjoy it.”
Mr. A later posted on the Facebook page where the post was posted, saying, “Thank you so much. I hope this chicken restaurant does well. I never said that I would not pay it back.”
Meanwhile, the story of the chicken restaurant discounting the price of chicken to a customer who promised to sponsor 30 chickens at an orphanage in December of last year was also known.
