LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A movie star's act of kindness made the holiday season a little brighter for a Louisville non-profit.

An employee from the Home of the Innocents was buying turkeys Friday for the Home's Thanksgiving meal when she ran into Jon Voight.

Voight is in Louisville shooting a movie.

He asked her what the turkeys were for, then offered to pay for them.

The Home of the Innocents posted about the encounter on their Facebook page and said they were thankful for his generosity.
