Over the weekend, Tyler Perry went to an Atlanta restaurant to pickup a takeout order, and left a $500 tip for each of the restaurant’s 21 employees.
Today, he paid for all the groceries during Seniors Hour at 44 supermarket locations in Atlanta, USA.
The elderly are super venerable right now with the coronavirus pandemic going around and deserve every bit of help that is given to them.
Perry started on pensioners’ Wednesdays with 44 Kroger stores in Atlanta and then branched out to 29 other locations in his hometown of New Orleans – what a phenomenal act of kindness.
Kroger spokesperson for Atlanta Felix Turner told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution how senior shoppers were truly surprised by Perry’s kindness. Their faces lit up and their hearts were filled with happiness. The store and senior shoppers are beyond grateful!
“Senior and higher-risk Kroger shoppers in metro Atlanta did receive a nice surprise at the register this morning when they learned Tyler Perry had paid their grocery tab in full.
“We would like to join our customers in thanking Mr Perry for his kindness and generosity during this unprecedented pandemic.”
A shopper, 64-year-old Phil Kloer, expressed his gratitude, telling the publication that he was ‘dumbstruck’ when he was told he didn’t have to pay his $290 (R5k) bill thanks to Mr Perry.
