    A Seattle Thai food restaurant is offering a free Christmas dinner to anyone in need on Christmas Day.

    “If you know someone who would not be able to have a festive holiday (meal) on Christmas Day, Thai Siam Restaurant would like to extend our warmest invitation to a free turkey and meatloaf dinner,” the restaurant’s Facebook page read. 

    The meals are planned to be served from noon to 2 p.m. on Christmas. Thai Siam is located in Crown Hill neighborhood of North Seattle, at 8305 15th Ave. N.W. 

    The free meal for those in need has been a family tradition at the restaurant since 1988.

    “Every year when we do them, it’s a good feeling that we can give back, because everyone here is supporting [the cause],” Thai Siam manager Ott Pinbang told KIRO 7 last year. 

    In 2016, the restaurant gave out 800 meals on Christmas. 

    Earlier this year, Thai Siam also had a benefit dinner to support the Union Gospel Mission, Cancer Lifeline and other organizations. The dinner was $25 per person for adults, and all proceeds from the dinner benefited those in need. 

    This year, that benefit dinner raised $30,739.08.

    “What a beautiful day today,” restaurant staff posted afterward on Facebook. “Thank you everyone for your generosity and support to our 2017 benefit dinner. Making this year the most successful one.”

    Thai Siam is accepting donations ahead of the Christmas Day meal. If you would like to donate, call 206-784-5465.
