An Arkansas woman gave numerous shoppers a huge surprise at two Kroger grocery stores in Little Rock and North Little Rock on Tuesday.
When Ashley Ann Jones learned about the long lines at food banks and the impact the coronavirus pandemic has had on people’s jobs, she decided to do something to help, according to KNWA.
“I was like, I’m going to buy groceries,” Jones said, adding, “Story after story about people getting laid off, or furloughed or just lost their company.”
She bought $28,000 worth of groceries for the unsuspecting and thankful shoppers.
“Really exciting to be in the position to be able to do that. And I would much rather give the money directly to the community,” Jones said.
“A lot of those areas I looked over, the communities are underserved, and there were so many people that were there, they were in shock. They were in disbelief,” she continued.
Instagram users praised Jones for her kindness and generosity, calling the gift “beautiful” and “thoughtful.”
“That’s amazing. I love this so much. I didn’t think of this before. You’ve inspired us to do this too one day,” one person wrote. Via – Breitbart
