Secret Santa delivers from drive-thru lane at south Lincoln Chick-fil-A



A secret Santa struck early at the Chick-fil-A drive-thru at SouthPointe Pavilions in Lincoln.

"To the generous customer that left $400 in the drive-thru tonight with instructions to pay for as many meals as possible for the cars behind her ... you paid for all of the meals for 26 consecutive cars!" owner Charlie Colón said in social media posts early Wednesday.

He thanked her for her generosity and kindness, saying it was incredible for employees to witness the reactions "and a tremendous life lesson for all of us as to how one person makes a difference!"

The post sparked dozens of retweets and hundreds of likes even before the lunch crowd started hitting Wednesday at the fast-food restaurant.
