    My grandparents threw a huge party to celebrate the birth of their first child.  At some point they discovered a homeless man  had been living in their storehouse eating odds and ends.  They heard his story:  he was a teacher who'd been laid off for political reasons.  They let him use their bath and gave him clean clothes, a to-go bag of food and some cash.   Years later during the war, people who used to work for my grandparents shared food with them.

    They told this story to their children, and my mother told it to me.   My mother like her parents was a decent employer and none of her employees ever stole from her as far as we know (my sibling is another story).
