Hello friends! I’m Katie. I’m a really happy person. I’m a super positive person. I’m not the “glass half full” type, I’m the “glass is overflowing” type. Sometimes I’m a little TOO positive and some don’t like that. I realize that with recent happenings, me posting Kroger deals when your store is out of stock or you don’t want to leave your house can look like I’m being insensitive to the situation or that I’m not acknowledging what is happening.

The fact is, people still need groceries and essentials. And more than ever, we need to save money. So, I will continue to reevaluate what we post here, while remaining sensitive to the fact, that some of these things may not be in stock. However, keep in mind that just because something isn’t in stock in your store, doesn’t mean that’s the same for everyone. Leaving a negative comment doesn’t really help. Don’t want to go inside the store? Kroger Pickup (Clicklist) may be your new best friend. And if you’re ONLY using Kroger Digital Coupons, try Kroger Ship!

Let’s kick negativity in the butt and spread some goodness. 😍 I’ll start!!

I know I missed out but thought to share my story. I've seen alot of negativity & depressing FB post with friends & family lately & posted a giveaway alittle simular to this Kroger post. The first 4 people that commented they read my post then reposted to spread the love will receive alittle something from me in the mail or porch sometime this yr/month of 2020. Rather it be a book, magazine, sweet treat, gift card, beauty item, ect. This took off & I'm seeing many friends & family spreading the love on FB. I'm sending out 10 care packages this week because I couldn't do just 4 and wanted everyone to spread the sunshine that we all enjoy. Can't wait to hear the feedback!! Eeeeeeekkkkk✌☺

my act of kindness was done for us we are. A young wheelchair-bound due to cerebral palsy we are on lockdown in Indiana and for almost two weeks I cannot find stuff because Kroger not having anything such as meat. I had seen a post about a local Bakery that was helping by suggesting two buy for elderly friends and Neighbors I reached out and not only did this Bakery help they went above and beyond bringing us care packages multiple times this week alone all at no charge to us which is beyond a blessing

My daughter is a part of the school dance team and their season came to an end quickly and they were unable to go to the state and national competitions. Her coaches spent the day on Monday going to each and every girls house(in separate vehicles) and then had a “dance party” in the front yard and driveway and included my daughter (while everyone was distanced) just so they could see each Other and put a smile on the girls faces! It was amazing!❤️

My neighbors were upset because they couldn't find any disinfecting wipes. They are both physicians and are caring for others all day. When I heard the anxiety and frustration in their words I decided to pay it forward and ran inside to grab some extra wipes that we had. They were so incredibly grateful and I have no doubt that they will pay it forward.

Today I encountered a family that was struggling with just the basics. I gave them some of my groceries and a bit of money. I will meet them again to give them baby wipes for their child since they can't find wipes. I sent them to a food bank so I hope they manage.

I used my last Clorox wipes to clean the "scooter " for an elderly man, so that he could have clean handles. I listened to my 9 year old and put faith over fear. We have taken in someone who is not working and are helping provide food for my mom and sibling. Thank you for continuing with finding the deals to help us save money.

My husband’s work just gave each employee $300 to help with expenses during all this chaos. Tomorrow, we are eating lunch at our favorite local restaurant and surprising the owner with a $300 tip. They are currently struggling to stay open right now. My husband is amazingly generous.

I started a GoFundMe page for a local pizza company as a project for school. They have a “Pay It Forward” program where for a $1 donation kids that need for can stop and get a slice of pizza and a bottle of water after school and Saturday mornings. Our goal was to help feed the 12 kids a day for a month ($250.) We have raised over $4,000 to help feed the 140 people a day, because of the coronavirus he opened it up to anyone who needs something to eat no questions asked.

My son works in EMS. He has been calling me and telling me how great people & businesses have been. A local barbecue place gave them cards for 10 free sandwiches, pizza places give them free cheese bread when they pick up pizza orders, and others. It warms my heart that while he’s out there risking his health, that others are helping him by giving food and appreciation.

I have 4 kids that have been getting their gently used clothes, shoes and toys bagged up to donate locally just as soon as we are allowed. We usually try to find local kids we know and discreetly pass them on. We have a Church friend who dropped off Some for my daughter yesterday. They are from her 2 granddaughters that she is raising. She is so kind and Selfless. It truly comes in a circle in our situation. We are very blessed and hope to share our blessings.

I witnessed my daughter, Lola, show kindness when we went to Kroger last week. An older gentleman was at his car trying to put groceries away. Lola went up to him and helped him and then put his buggy up. She is only 11 years old but I’m so proud that she can show kindness even in situations that are going on today.

My daughter is an ICU/COVID-19 Nurse and IS on the actual front lines. Her team is exhausted. They need scrubs and new shoes but at this time I can only provide comfort food during their shifts. I am making healthy options that can be grabbed on the go that are a couple bites each. They are loving the nourishment and i will continue as long as I can get the groceries to do it. $25 would go a long way in supplies as I am thrifty!

During this difficult time with this covid10, I was at Walmart and posted in a local community group if anyone needed anything. A single mom asked for milk and eggs and I delivered. I offered water, wipes, tp, she said she already had those. Ive been following a local family on fb that lost their dog when they went hiking last year. There has been a dog spotted that could be there's and they need a cage to capture it. People have donated money but isn't enough. It breaks my heart and wanted to help. So I donated the $500..I hope and pray it's their dog, Oakley

Last week I was shopping at a store and there was a woman desperately searching for toilet paper and only found three single rolls of 1 ply. We had a short discussion and we on our way. While I continued shopping I found a 12 count of a much better quality toilet paper randomly place on a shelf. I quickly hunted the woman down to give it to her and she was so grateful.

A friend offered to take food to two people that are sick. At this point, one is in the hospital and one at home. I offered to take Gatorade over to the husband at home sick but my pastor offered to go in my place. Lots of prayers are being prayed for the sick.

March 29, 202012:46 pm

I decided to reach out to at least 5 people each day by phone or video apps to check in and see who they are doing and ask if there is anything they need. I have come across a few who have broken down crying because they are struggling but have just been holding it all in. For example, I have a friend (more of just an acquaintance) who is a recently divorced mom of 5 kids. Just moved into an apartment that does not have a washer and dryer in or on site. rather than dragging 5 kids to a laundro-mat, I offered to come pick up her 6 loads and wash them and take them to her. I mean, I am home anyway, so doing laundry is cake. And I know what that situation is like having been a single mom of 4 little ones myself. This is an opportunity to serve our friends, family, neighbors and community in a way that may seem small or intrusive, but most of us are too proud to ask for help, so I am just finding needs and offering it.

I work as a waitress in two different restaurants and have been out of work for 2 weeks. I was involved in the final closings of both kitchens and was offered to be able to take home some of the perishable food items and knew that there were people less fortunate than I that would be so grateful for anything to eat, because we have an amazing employer that actually provides free meals while working. I realize that this situation has affected so many people in so many ways and I feel blessed to know that I would not starve, but I wanted to make sure that food was not a worry for my less fortunate co-workers. Making ends meet would be difficult not having a steady income and the additional food expense would hurt, so I am checking in weekly with a couple people, delivering any food and leftovers that I can spare and reassuring them that I care about them. Honestly the lack of social interaction has been missed the most!

My act of kindness was leaving my comfy office at the local hospital to go to the front lines to help in the Emergency room! They needed hands, I have some, and while I’m scared to death of this virus everyone deserves a fighting chance.

I’m part of a phone ministry at my church that calls and checks in on at risk members of our congregation. We are offering help with groceries, prescriptions, etc. so they don’t have to go out during Covid 19. My daughters are part of the youth group who is running the errands. It’s been a joy to talk to members of our congregation I might not usually cross paths with. The members have been extremely grateful!

Having sciatica knowing that I couldn't stand in the extremely long lines at some of the store a sister from our church offered to stand in line and do any shopping that our family of 4 needed since she is a first responder and had protective gear... It was such an amazing experience she did because she knew I didn't have a means of taking care of it... Blessed beyond measure!!

Susan Seal

March 28, 202004:29 pm

My son had a gift card from Kroger that had about $10 on it after he checked out in the self checkout lane. He had recently been the recipient of someone randomly paying for his gas at the pump. They told him to "pay it forward." He saw an elderly gentleman in Kroger and said, "I have a $10 gift card I want to give you." He said the man seemed genuinely grateful. Small random acts of kindness make us all feel good! It warmed my heart for this small act. He is such a kind giving man and definitely paid it forward.

March 28, 202004:04 pm

I'm a 20+ year veteran of the food service industry. I've been taking advantage of Kroger pick-up and cooking up a storm for my restaurant friends who are out of work. My small stockpile of household and personal care items is getting shared too. I'm a hugger, so it's been really hard to just wave from a distance when doing drop offs or when someone picks something up.

Charlane Noel

March 28, 202012:18 pm

This week I meet an elderly lady in Kroger. She was upset because she had went to the bank to get cash and something happened and her card went into the machine and she couldn’t get it back. I ask if I could help and she wasn’t sure what to do. I called the bank and helped her get a new card issued to her. She was so happy and kept thanking me for going out of my way to help her. The happiness and comfort it gave her made it all worth it.

I have a neighbor who lost both her jobs during the coronavirus pandamic. With no work and not able to get unemployment she is struggling. With TP being in such short supply, and I knew she needed some, I asked if we could trade. Since beauty parlors are shut down, she trimmed my hair and I surprised her with a 2 bags of groceries and a large thing of toilet paper. It is just the little things like throwing in 20 kcups for her coffee pot, chocolate, and other various surprises that brought her joy and made me happy to be of help. She is such a giving neighbor and wanted to return the favor too!

I work at my local Kroger in Elkview, WV. I have been off for 4 days with a very bad chest cold. I am very thankful to my co-workers that have volunteered to give me their own masks that they themselves need so that I am protected. THANK YOU! Also, thanks to that great customer that gave me a tip just for doing my job even after I insisted on not taking it. I was able to buy cold medicine with it which was much needed!

Tracey

My boss strongly suggested our team go to lunch as a team building opportunity. A coworker and I noticed another coworker was being a bit distant. When the waiter came, she only ordered water. We took her to the bathroom and my coworker “Just happened ” to mention her husband gave her some extra cash and offered to pay for both of our meals. I quickly accepted making our coworker feel more comfortable to accept. Coworkers often become family and we always look for opportunities to be there for each other.

Deborah Bidwell

March 28, 202012:02 am

I work at a grocery store myself and have seen many times when customers have not had enough money to buy the simplest of items. I have paid for many customers groceries and told them,"Don't worry about it, I'm happy to help out any way I can." Many of these customers have now become regular customers and stop back in just to say hello and it's nice to see that there are still great and giving people out there. A few have even offered to pay me back or buy me dinner or a soft drink. I always tell them like I did when I first helped them out, that I would hope that if I were in the same position they were in at the time, that someone would step up and help me out. I then tell them not to worry about it and next time if they are able to help out someone to just PAY IT FORWARD, any way you can. Even if it's just helping to load/unload their groceries.

Melissa

During this difficult time, a friend of mine could find any medicine for her 2 year old and he relies on this medication to keep him alive. No one in her state had it and I found it for her in my state but her social worker found it else where. But I still helped her during this difficult time to help her and her son.

I know my aunt doesn't have much so a couple days after the governor closed all the stores and people went crazy buying everything, my aunt went to Kroger to buy groceries. Just about everything was gone when she went there. She used the last of her food stamps to buy things she had never had before as it was the only food left along with a few snacks but nothing like a full lunch or dinner. Just odds and ends. She gets a lot of her food from food banks as well. I went to the grocery store in my area and bought several items for her that was I. Stock at my store. At least I knew she has tortillas to make a ham sandwich because there was no bread along with a few small cans of vegetables I found. I was able to get the last can of peanut butter and cracker's for her along with eggs and milk. I went thru my stash and gave her a few items I had. Knowing she had some food in her house so she would be fed not only Mae my day but made he week or so on food that I was able to provide or her. Without her even asking.

We are running errands for some 90 somethings in our family. We also have been delivering CDs on Sunday morning to older members of our church who don’t have computers and such to listen to the online sermon with church closed. The first week we had to track down some players so they could even listen to the CD. It has been good to check in with the elderly and make sure they know we care.

Robbie

March 27, 202008:34 pm

A friend recently said a neighbor had asked if she could get a cup of sugar or flour from her not sure which it was. Anyway, the lady gave her a gift bag for giving her the sugar or flour and inside it was 2 rolls of toilet paper. With toilet paper being so hard to get right now I thought that was a really kind thing to do.

Checking in and getting groceries for elderly neighbors

Rebecca Addy

March 27, 202007:40 pm

We live in a neighborhood of mostly elderly people and most cannot go to the store, and, for those who can, they’re having a hard time finding the essentials. I have been reaching out to our neighbors to see what they need and gifting them from our stockpile or grabbing extra while at the store. It’s so important now more than ever that we extend a helping hand! We’ve also been offering to walk dogs for our neighbors for free! When we order take out, we’ve been leaving a small gift for our driver each time with Lysol wipes and toilet paper and hand sanitizer. It’s the little things and the smallest gestures that make a world of difference in these difficult times! I just hope more people find it in their heart to help others and it becomes more contagious than this darn virus we are battling!

With all thata going on the small things still stand out. As I was picking up my Krogers order, I witnessed Tomeika at the Floyd Rd store in Austell, GA going above and beyond to ensure customers where happy. With the store almost empty of inventory she went back in the story from the lot to see if she could find a few suitable substitutes. It was late in the evening and she said she had been working since 2 a.m. Tomeikas goal was making sure customers were satisfied and she did it all with a smile on her face like it was an ordinary day.

We always make sure our neighbors have food during times like these. After the tornadoes, we drove around and delivered ice. When we don’t have a lot of extra cash, my couponing and my wife-chef’s expertise We help how we can.

My mom was able to get some toilet paper the other day at the grocery. She then went to Walgreens, where she witnessed an elderly lady come asking for toilet paper, to wich they were out. My mom then asked the lady to walk outside with her, went to her car, and gave the elderly lady the toilet paper she had bought.

I have been picking things up for my blind friend who hasn’t been able to get out because she is older and her older sister is terrified of getting sick so she hasn’t been able to get out and get things for her. So every time I got to the store, I call her and ask her what she needs so I can get it while I’m out and drop it off to her!

Andrea Mattingly

March 27, 202008:19 am

I have started shopping for my older relatives They call and tell me what they need and I try to find it for them. This also includes their pets. Then I drop it on their porch for them or the send someone else to pick it up. Some live an hour away. I consistently get calls for everything and I do my best to accommodate. Most don't get out and others can't find basic essentials, like milk and bread, locally. This has been the most rewarding thing I have done since I started couponing. I love that I am able to help so many people during this crazy time. I love my family and am so grateful I am able to help keep them safe and fed. Thank you for all your helpful posts.

While shopping at Krogers in Greenvill oh I helped people who where looking for eggs in the 12 pack carton . On the top shelf were kroger eggs in the 6 pack .This was the first time in this store for me. So 5 shoppers went home with eggs . ;) I also helped a elderly lady showing her what food she could substitute for what she was making. All in all a great shopping trip in these trying times.

I witnessed a young man load up groceries for an elderly lady. It was pouring down rain and I thought it was really sweet of him. It inspired me to have a package of toilet paper in my car just in case I would come across someone in need. Fast forward a week later, I was at the store waiting for them to open along with 20 other people waiting in line outside. There were only about 5 packages of toilet paper and it was gone pretty much as soon as the door opened. I saw a disappointed look on a man's face. We happened to be checking out at the same time. I waited for him to walk out to the parking lot and I asked him If he needed toilet paper. He said he was on his last roll and had been looking for a couple of days. I told him I had an extra package he could have. Who would have known something as simple as toilet paper would make someone's day lol. This is why I like to coupon. I enjoy helping people out.

My friend went shopping for TP and all the shelves were bare. She walked away shaking her head, when an elderly gentleman walked up to her and said that he would share his package of TP with her. She gladly accepted his offer, but on one condition, that she would pay for them. He finally said okay and she paid for the TP and gave him 12 of the 18 rolls. She thanked him for his kind gesture and said she would pray for him to stay healthy and happy during this rough time that we all are dealing with daily.

In this crazy time it has been heart warming to know how good our group of friends is! We have 3 friends (2 at home with babies and my sister who is now at the hospital giving birth) who have been relying on the group to get what they need from the outside world and drop it off and sanitize the package. Would be great to win so I could help my girls out in there time of need!

I was recently sitting in an Outback steakhouse having dinner with my son. When we were about finished with our meal, I asked the waitress for the bill. She told me a gentleman somewhere in the restaurant paid for our meal, and told us to have a blessed evening. I had never experienced something like this before. My son was just amazed.A big shout out and thank you to this individual!

I work as a shift lead at a pharmacy/store amd since the Corona Virus panic buying kicked in, I have witnessed how people dont have regards with other people by being greedy with supplies. So being a shift.lead, I did what I can to save some basic commodities to the ones who need it the most (elderly) and give it to them if they will ask for it also I give them free hand sanitizers. Makes you feel happyseeing how thankful they are with such simpe act.

There are many businesses in my hometown who are stepping up to help the community. Many restaurants are making meals and delivering them to feed the kids for free every day who would normally be eating at school and one has days where you can come pick up meal for anyone no questions asked. A local distillery is making hand sanitizer. There are so many acts of kindness going on, it's amazing. Proud to be from Athens, Ohio.

My kids 10 and 12 were so excited that their teachers were doing a drive thru parade! The teachers got into their cars and drove through the neighborhood waving and some of the cars had signs in the window (we miss you, etc). Never would have thought such a little thing would have them out on the front yard smiling and waving like crazy... no candy needed. Lol.

It may seem small but my family has always tried to being a cart in from outside. With a family of five i like to think it helps in everyday life but since this virus has hit the carts are even more chaotically placed so I will round up a couple in the back lot and push them inside.

With 3/4 of my husbands hours being cut I haven't been able to financially help others, but I was able to share toilet paper, sanitizing wipes and soups purchased through couponing before all this happened. I have seen many people helping others with food-sharing and offering to do their shopping. It's heart-warming.

My girlfriend waited in line over 30 minutes for grocery to open to get that all important commodity...… TP. By the time she walked to the paper aisle it was all gone....as she was standing there talking out loud to herself "down to the last roll"- a gentleman rolled his cart by her, overheard and tossed her 1 of the 2 packs of TP he had. It has restored her faith in our fellow man for another day!

Thanks to your posts I have been able to stock up on many items recently After raising 5 kids and having a daughter and her 2 children live with us for 6 years, we are now down to the 2 of us. I had not been using coupons as much lately, but have gotten back into it more. I am thankful that I did because it allowed me to share with my children and their families and still be able to donate to our free pantries we have about town. I had extra pasta and sauce, tuna, peanut butter, cereal and even some treats for the kids. Thank you for your help and thank you to all who are doing their part to help others in this time of need.

I want to say "Thank you" to the lady in the Barksdale Blvd Kroger. My mom was recently released from the hospital and quarantined from going in public due to being high risk. She can not take care of needs like groceries and other necessities . Since i am now buying for 2 households and the limits are such a small amount, I tried to buy her the limit and on my tab add 1 of each of the popular items to my bill for my house. I was told that I could not buy over the limit even though I was splitting the bill and using 2 different loyalty cards. I asked how the older community who are now quarantined supposed to be taken care of if someone else has to buy for them and also take care of the needs of their family. I kind of went into panic mode at that moment ( no screaming or making a fool of myself just felt sick at my stomach). A sweet lady in the checkout next to mine jumped and said put the extra on my bill. I told her much I appreciated her help and I wanted to pay her for the total it would cost. I started digging to find my purse under all the items I had stacked on top and before I could turn around she paid and left the store . This lady was an angel for helping me. This COVID19 is real and small things are becoming upsetting and making some us feel we are not sure what to do to make sure our families are taken care of. I was told if you have a family member that is quarantined by a doctor that you can get a letter from the doctor verifying that they are quarantined and they will let you buy limits for their home and your home. I hope this helps someone else who is trying to help someone who can not go to public places .

I was able to be part of the first team from our school district to hand out lunches to local families. It feels really good to be part of such a great community.

They were so thankful and gave Mom piece of mind her kids were able to eat healthy while she was working.

It was very sweet.

Since we have a good supply of toilet paper, hot dogs, canned chicken, etc. from stocking up during Kroger sales, we shared with a friend of ours who was out of town when all the panic started and has had difficulty finding what he needs since he returned. However, I think one of the best things I've heard about was Elon Musk using his connections and getting 1255 ventilators from China and donating them to US facilities.

I went to Kroger Saturday morning at opening time to grab a few things I needed, one of them being toilet paper, of course everyone was going crazy for the toilet paper so it was gone quickly I was lucky enough to score one pack, as I was shopping through the store I noticed a elderly man calling a family member saying they had some but it was gone before he could get to the isle and he had also gotten there when doors opened as well thinking he would score some, over hearing that conversation I kindly asked the man if he would like my pack that I had been lucky enough to grab and he was so happy and filled with joy when I offered it to him and said yes! It made my day making someone else’s day!

A few days ago, I made plans to head out one morning to pick up groceries for the meals that we had planned out for the week. The night before I headed out, I posted a message on our neighborhood page letting neighbors know that I was going out and if they needed anything. A received a few responses with their requests! I added the groceries to my list and headed out. Luckily, I was able to pick up everything that was requested. Before I headed home, I dropped off the groceries on my neighbors' porch and messaged them once it was delivered. Everyone was so thankful. If felt good to help others during a time where we are all nervous and scared to go out.

Recently as my brother (in his sixty's) was leaving his late night shift keeping the gas flowing for all of us, he stopped at a local restaurant drive through. A police woman was behind him so he pulled over & waved her on to go in front of him. When he got to the window, she had paid for his order. Working at a gas station as you are aware doesn't pay well so her generosity was so appreciated. #payitforward!!! Thank you for having this giveaway as so many of us are out of work. :)

Our sheriff's department just dropped off bottled water and paper towels. We are quarantined and cannot leave the house. The deputy who delivered the supplies wouldn't take payment! Life in a small town at its best.

I was at the jc gas station after shopping & the lady next to me was getting paper towels to pump her gas So I asked do you want a glove (I had extra in my Pocket). She said yes & started to pump her gas. She asked do you need toilet paper? I have extra. Which was awesome because that was the only thing on my list that I did not get.

My family and I volunteered with The Just One Project on Saturday. This is a local food pantry in Las Vegas, NV that does mobile pop up and give locations across our city. The line was unbelievable, we'd volunteered before but this was different. So many people in need and scared of what's to come with so many businesses closed.

I’m a mother of three and I truly believe that you lead by example, positive family, positive future for them. This mindset came after my battle with breast cancer. Just last week my husband had a coworker loose his mother to cancer and was only left with his older sister to care for him. We packed up food, laundry detergent and several cookbooks and brought them over telling them that if they ever need anything to let us know. 2.5 years ago I left my job as an office manager to move into my husbands grandmothers house to care for her. She has advanced Alzheimer’s and could no longer live alone. It’s our daily good deed to make this sweet woman smile. I also once a month have my kids go through there clothes and toys and we take unwanted items to the local battered woman’s and children center.

In a fast food drive through the other day and I paid for the ladies meal behind me. Come to find out it was for her 2 boys who wondered why anyone would pay for someone else’s meals. Great life lesson those boys learns! Made me feel good and helped that mom out with a little extra money in her pocket.

My nabor is on chemo and her husband ordered a new stove off lowes online. They delivered it yesterday but because of their age he couldnt chage the orpheuses and she was scared to let the lowes people in the house because of the virus and their health conditions. So I went over (we have been self quarantined because I have 5 kids and not taken any chances) installed the new stove and changed the orpheus from natural gas to propain for them. Just seeing them happy makes me happy!

Our local school has been giving the school children free breakfast and lunch pick up so no child goes hungry during this crisis. My daughter could not pick up her children's free food because she was working. When she pulled into her driveway after work my granddaughters teacher was pulling into her driveway to drop off her food. She said I noticed you did not pick up your food and wanted to make sure Olivia did not go without. This is a teacher who goes above and beyond.

I have a blind friend, Debbie Baker, who needed groceries on Monday, and even though I had quarantined myself last week because I'm 68, I braved the swarm of people at Kroger and got her some groceries! Now I'm taking my temperature twice a day cos I'm scared to death of catching Coronavirus. She doesn't really have any one to do this for her so I try to help whenever I can.

Where we live most of our neighbors are over 70. I told them if they needed things to please ask. So I got a big list of everything they all needed together and did a big grocery store trip for them all. I know it is really helpful for some of the people. We have to be a community during this time. Help each other and love each other.

We have great neighbors and that has not changed during this unprecedented time. We have been exchanging baked goods with one neighbor. The other is a widow and we have been taking care of household tasks for her, not for anything in return. But the other day she called and said she had dinner for us and treats for the kids.

Im commenting because I am a mommy of 8 and my neighbors have regardless of me asking them to pass on the blessing to someone who may be in more need than I at this moment, pooled together and dropped off food and supplies to my family because they felt that we would need them soon considering the circumstances. I have to say that this has really been a true blessing because while we were okay at the time that they offered, when they dropped it off we were just at the bottom and it really came in handy! Showing Love is the True Way that we will get past this! It put me in remembrance of the song from a long time ago.....WE ARE THE WORLD!!!!!!!! MOMMY M8XS (Mommy of 8)

On 3/23/2020, I went to Kroger in Memphis, TN at Riverdale & Shelby Dr. to buy last minute items before city shutdown. I found everything I needed except the brand of eggs I use. There were several of Kroger eggs but I use Eggland eggs. There was a guy stocking the eggs and I asked him, if they had any more Eggland eggs in the back. The guy was very nice and respectful and said let me go check. He went to check and came back to apologize and say they were out. He didn't have to go check and could have just said were are out and to try back later after a delivery truck was coming that afternoon. So I head to register to pay for other groceries and the lady in front of me was short $5.36 and started to take things off. I told the cashier I would pay for it. The customer thanked me and I said an employee was nice to me earlier so I can be nice too. A great day during this pandemic times

I made a trip to Kroger to locate a special formula for a friend's baby. They had enough on hand to last until their Amazon order was due to arrive when they received a notice that it would be delayed by 2 weeks. None of their local stores had the brand the baby required. Fortunately, our Kroger was not sold out!

By way of a NextDoor social media post, a neighbor who works as a CPA and tax practitioner provides generic and free tax advice to readers. He recently posted information about the the stimulus checks we are about to receive, i.e., how much we can expect to receive, that it will based on adjusted income from 2018 (or 2019 if you've already filed), etc. What a generous thing to do for us!

Hello, my recent act of kindness is that paid for a elderly lady groceries when she forgot to he her purse out of her car and it would of taken maybe 15-20 minutes for her to go to her car and maybe would of caused get some back pain trying to rush while the line was getting longer. I was very ecstatic to do this act of kindness and make her day.

Judy Waters

March 26, 202008:50 am

I want to first say how much I love you lady and all you do to help us out on a daily basis to save money with Kroger. I want to stay humble and not brag about the acts of kindness I am doing but here is one. I have put my quilting on hold at the moment and started making face masks for all my nurse and first responder friends. I usually only make blankets and quilts so I am by no means perfect and fast at making them but they are able to cover their N95 (only have one left) with the masks that I make so they can have some added protection. The picture is two I made last night.

The teachers in our community did a "drive-by" through the neighborhoods. They honked and waved at their students from their cars. Everyone came out and stood on their porches and waved to each other. It was sweet and made several of us tear up at the thoughtfulness of the teachers.

I was tipped 50 for helping a client of the business I work for who is home bound due to an injury and she was missing her dogs during this time of isolation.

I don’t know that this qualifies as a random act of kindness, but every Sunday, my husband drives to an elderly lady’s house and takes out her trash for her. She has lung cancer and is too weak to take it to the curb. He also feeds all of her animals and does anything else that needs to be done. He’s been doing this for over a year. He’s a very kind person.

Just want to put this out there...when i was at walmart i had an elderly lady walk up to me needing help to find packing boxes so i offered to take her over and show her where they are. She politely says would you just point me in the right direction so i did. A couple minutes later i went ahead and walked over she was having trouble finding them so i took her right to them which is right around the corner and took the biggest packing box out to show her but i told her these dont have handles on them. She said "oh my those wont work" then tells me " my husband passed away a little while back and i need packing boxes with handles to pack his belongings in". I told the lady " mam im sorry about your husband and the best place to get packing boxes at that i know of is Home Depo and they have handles and theyre sturdy." She then tells me " well i will just go to Home Depo then" and also tells me "thank you for taking time to help me and for listening to me." I said "mam your welcome and it was no problem helping you." MY POINT IS TAKE THE TIME TO HELP AND LEND A LISTENING EAR IT WONT HURT YOU NONE!!!

I took it all to her and put on her porch last night. We got to see each other’s faces from a distance. It was so wonderful to visit for a few. I wish I could have hugged her and reassured her. Can’t wait until I can again.

You could see the tired look on their faces but kept going and being helpful in any way they all pitched in helping each other as well. Everyone here seems to be donating to food banks and cooking dropping off meals helping to serve meals there is no lack of kindness. Everyone is also wearing a gentleness about them not the usual life is about me attitude but really seeing their fellow man/woman/child it is refreshing

I have been locked in at home, so unable to do much, but my son came home last night and told me how his dad (my husband) was at a gas station this morning, and a guy was trying to buy some snack cakes, but had to leave them when he did not have any money. (his debit card declined) My husband quickly bought his stuff and took it to the young guy who was obviously having a rough time as it appeared he was homeless. My son was so choked up about how the young man struggled to hold back tears when my husband followed him down the street to give the stuff to him. I am proud of my husband setting such great examples for our kids.

While on Facebook one day I saw a post from the neighborhood page. A lady stated that her co-worker and his girlfriend lost their place to live. She was asking if anyone could help them out in this situation or knew of a place for them to contact. I sent her a PM and offered food, toothpaste, mouthwash, kleenex. We agreed that I would put the items on the front porch in bags. She would pick them up and bring it along with her to work. I left 3 bags full on my porch. I hope that it helped them out a little. :) Have a blessed day!

My husband was shopping at the Fred Meyers in the Dalles, Oregon. He had 3 gallons of milk in his cart. The checker told him that due to restrictions over hoarding because of the covid-19 virus, customers were now limited to purchasing only 2 gallons of milk per purchase. The lady in line behind him volunteered to take one of the milks for him, and then once the purchase was completed she gave it to him and would not accept any payment for the milk. Such kindness!

I had picked up the last 4 pack of tolite tissue left on the shelf and was continuing to shop when I walked up on a lady that was telling her little girl that the store was out of tolite paper again and this was the 4th store they had checked. I turned around and gave them my pack as I still had some at home and was only getting it to make sure I had some extra in case a neighbor or one of the kids needed it. But I gave it to her and she was very grateful.

I saw a middle aged woman stop to make sure an older gentleman had what he needed while grocery shopping at Kroger earlier this week. It was so nice to see someone trying to help instead of run them over or push them out of the way (which I've seen a shocking amount of in the past few weeks). Katie, thanks for all you do! I've followed for years and always appreciate your hard work!

With the current situation, my boyfriend got temporarily laid off as he works in the hotel industry. His work ended up making some packages of food for the employees that got laid off. When we went to go pick it up, we were talking with his boss and told him we were unable to find toilet paper at the stores. His boss offered to see if the he could find some extras that he could provide us with. He went out of his way to go check and bring back an additional roll we could add to our stock to support our family. We weren’t asking for any and were just in casual conversation, but he offered on his own to try to help us out.

When my mother passed away last year, one of the things left when we cleaned out her apartment was 6 of the large canisters of Clorox wipes. I've been carrying one canister in my car, and have been using them to wipe things off as I leave - the buttons on the vacuum chute at the bank drive-through, the door handle on the outside of the Post Office, nozzle at the gas pump, etc. Also use them on carts at grocery instead of using the ones in the store to help conserve them for others.

His mom recently passed, he's been helping his dad this past week for groceries/medications/working with the VA/ as he's in his late 70's, his Aunt, Uncle get their groceries/medications as well as a couple of elderly neighbors of theirs. They have done so many good deeds it needs to rewarded and I feel this would be a very good reward for them. I feel that they are the ultimate self less people regardless of their income or status. In my mind they are true heroes in life and someone to look up to ....

I was at Dillons (our Kroger store) last Friday. I was grabbing some items that were on sale and when I went to the aisle the only ones left were all the way at the top and in the back. As I was trying to grab a couple of the detergents some older ladies noticed the sale and lamented they were all gone. I informed them that there was indeed 5 on the self and I'd gladly hand them some of the bottles and to let me know how many. As I 5'6" and the top shelf is over 6 foot I was on my tip toes and had grabbed a handled scrub brush to hopefully push the items closer. As I stretched, hopped, and wildly swung i was able to get all the bottles but 1 moved forward and handed off the now small line of ladies wanting a bottle. I get to the last one and I just can't quite reach it, so a wonderful lady a couple inches taller than me offered to help get the last bottle down off the shelf for me. The entire time all I could think was how a small group of ladies all helped each other out in getting a needed item that most of us couldn't reach on the shelves. I know this is a simple thing but when you're short and you need and item you can't reach its appreciated when someone is willing to help.

March 25, 202011:17 pm

I reached out to our neighborhood via the facebook page (as well as contact to people whom I see outside driving by) to make sure that the older and more fragile members of our neighborhood are able to get the supplies they need. If they don't, I offer to get them when I go to the store as I make about twice weekly trips to the store due to the size of our large family (5 kids, 2 adults). It has helped get others to reach out as well and now there are quite a few of us reaching out to anyone and everyone when we go out to run errands or pick up things for our neighbors...not just the ones who can't get out.

Rhoda Stroud

March 25, 202011:13 pm

Several neighborhoods in our community have a table set up where you can take an item you need or leave an item for others. In this current crisis, many of the items were necessities that people are finding difficult to locate to purchase in stores. I thought it was the sweetest gesture.

I was leaving a grocery store and saw a elderly man searching for wipes to wipe his cart. I saw his worried face and pulled my Clorox wipes from my purse (I’m 33weeks pregnant so take every precaution And carry with me at all times ) and offered some to him. He was so grateful and kept telling me how wonderful I was . The next day I saw another elderly lady when I had went to pharmacy and she was looking for clorox wipes. I offered my whole bag to the lady and she was so grateful. When doing good things for others, it’s absolutly amazing the warmth your soul feels.

I have been doing my part by trying to stay home and away from the public as much as possible. Knowing people are losing their jobs,even if for the time being I wanted to do something to make someone smile. So when I returned my 2 redbox movies I added a note and a few dollars to rent another movie or buy some snacks. My oldest daughter was with me and thought it was so cool. She is the only person who knows about it other than who recieved the movies. I just always remeber how we felt when someone paid for our meal at a drive thru once and wanted someone else to feel that way. Stay kind and always remember to pay it forward!

My neighbor, a very shy young man, came to take my disabled daughter to the grocery store. She and I both have mobility issues and are on walkers. He was so kind to help us he even carried everything into the house and helped get it put away in the kitchen.

I recently moved to a 55+ neighborhood, I have met only a few neighbors so far, but while unpacking today my next door neighbors came home and made a point to say hello and introduce themselves. They said they had been to the local grocery store and three other stores looking for gloves and toilet paper. I just so happen to ha e both in a good quanity because I am a couponer and deal finder. I purchased these things before I ever heard about a pandemic so I was happy to give my neighbors a large pack of toilet paper and a box of gloves. They were so appreciative as they were not going to have to continue looking for the products tomorrow . It felt good to help and it also felt nice to meet my neighbors in such an unusual way but one we will definitely remember. ;)

I live in a small community and have read about many kind jesters of kindness! I can’t get out of my house due to being immune system compromised. One of our localnn m pizza places made it so parents could pick up a $1 slice of pizza and can of pop for lunches while schools are shut down, during lunch for a couple hours a day, the manager or owner comes in to bleach things down and runs the register report to see someone had paid it forward to the tune of 300 lunches! Our community has pulled together to make sure none of our children miss meals! The bus drivers are even delivering and it doesn’t matter if you get free or reduced lunches, you can eat! I have seen people picking up groceries for neighbors, I myself check with elder family prior to my mom going out and she checks with older people she works for to make sure their needs are met. A local entrepreneur is setting up his eatery outside his home that he normally takes to the fair and will deliver meals if you order, although not free but allowing moms a break from cooking and some of our restaurants are shut down! We only have 4, not including pizza places. Our Pastors are doing online sermons to feed the soul! I have an amazing community and can’t tell you how many calls I personally have had due to my illness! I feel so blessed even in the troubled times!

My husband and I have turned our house into a daycare for four of our grandchildren who aren't allowed back in school while we are trying to stay safe from the Covid-19 virus. We have also provided fulltime care of Grandpa in our home for the past year, so we have had a lot of excitement over the past couple of weeks. I have going to the grocery store about every day after work to keep up on fruits and vegetables and bread, when I can find it on the shelves. I enjoy cooking for our family, but the grocery bill has doubled while caring for all the hungry birds in our nest.

March 25, 202010:51 pm

I gave a woman at Kroger all the toilet paper I had in my trunk the other day. Our store has been out for a few weeks now and she and I had struck up a conversation in the store about it all... when I came out to put my groceries in the trunk I realized we were parked next to each other and as she was loading up I asked her if she had any toilet paper at all. She said she didn’t and I knew I had 2 packs in my trunk so I just gave them to her: it made both of our days!

My most recent act of kindness occurred today. A neighbor whom I have never met posted on our nextdoor app made a post stating that she was in extreme need for detergent. Neighbors posted offering a few pods or some mail samples. I had plenty to spare thanks to my years of couponing. I sent her a private message telling her "I got you"...went on to ask for her address so I could drop off on her porch...all for free. Well, I boxed up probably 6 liquid bottles of good detergent and another box of household supplies that I had plenty to spare...again thanks to couponing. I dropped them off and left. She of course thanked me afterwards. I would do this again in a heartbeat.

I have been following you for a couple years now, specifically the must do and mega events. Over that time I have been able to affordably build a stockpile and did not need to go out in a panic searching for TP. Just want you to know you really saved my butt I really appreciate the work you put in to help people save money on essentials. I have been so grateful to not have a shortage concern in this already stressful time. So thank you!

I have been apart of and witnessed much kindness these last few days with the stay at home ordinances in place around our area. People are volunteering to shop for elderly and disabled or immunosuppressed people, walking pets, making meals, making face masks, preparing and/or purchasing food and delivering to our first responders ( fire, EMT, police), taking food to our local hospital for the doctors and nurses that are working overtime during this and most of all PRAYING! Praying for all the nation, our doctors, nurses, first responders, and everyone that is affected by this horrible virus here and around the world. It doesn’t take but a second to smile at someone or simply say hello, as just those small acts of kindness could very well be the highlight of someone’s day!

A lady was going through Kroger checkout buying a lot of groceries. The young man who was bagging had a hard time keeping up and apologized for the length of time it took to bag everything. The lady smiled at him and said: "Oh no, you did amazing! Thank you for your help!" These people truly work hard and do everything they can to make our shopping experience smooth and pleasant. I feel gratitude for them because they work, so that I can feed my family.

Since I live in a neighborhood with a bunch of retirees, I went door to door getting their grocery lists. I then went and picked and delivered their groceries. Yes some items I had to search a couple different stores but it kept them from going out. Was so happy to help! We need to be kind to each other during these times, instead of greedy.

I work with families in the care of Child Protective Services. Last week a newborn was transported by ambulance from 1 city ro mine. I got the call parent needed someone to sit with the baby bc she has younger kids who can't go to the hospital bc of ncov-19. I'd finished an 8 hr day of visits as a CPS contractor. I agreed to shower, shallow my food whole & get there. My shift scheduled was 12 hours max, I stayed 20. Mom had no support to keep the kids. I shares info with cps to give to daycare to let others come so she could see her baby. Done. Then the hospital said no visit bc she brought her 14 yr old. I was exhausted. I offered to stay when she got there, keep the 14 yr old so mom could see baby, talk to drs. Get MRI results etc. We got it done! Baby is on antibiotics. It wasn't corona and mom got to take care of all her babies. we moves that baby 2x. Hospitals are screening at the entry with guards. It was worth it.

Before the virus started, when I go to a drive through I like to pay for the person behind me. But because of trying to be safe I have not been in over 2 weeks.

They need our help, I am one of those seniors but feel blessed by my family.

The last time I went to Kroger, there were two locked buggies available, so I went outside to find one. I was looking around, and there was a man coming with a fairly big group of buggies. I recognized he didn't look like he worked there.. I asked him if he worked there, he said no...so I called him a"Good Samaritan"!!

My husband who is an ex police officer and I were in a drive thru, behind was an officer probably on his lunch. When we pulled to the payment window we paid for his food. My husband said he can remember trying to get a bite of food in before another call. This isnt the first time we have done this., but we felt with all the officers losing their lives it was the least we could do because they protect us everyday.

I would pay the gift card forward to a wonderful community member and friend of my moms who while schooling and keeping 2 little ones safe at home has made and donated over 75 reusable masks to a local hospital and nursing home and has even started a movement in our community and others have joined it. She is a wonderful selfless person and definitely would be greatful to receive this! She even made the front page of our local paper for her efforts!

I met a really kind lady recently at a food bank. She had walked there & couldn’t carry everything back to her house. I offered her a box that had handles & she was so grateful. However when I saw she was still picking what to take home, I asked if I could give her a ride home. She started crying & was telling me her husband just got out of the hospital. It made my soul happy that I could help. Thank you for being so positive, it’s what we really need right now.

Jonna

March 25, 202009:00 pm

With all of this madness going on I've helped in as many ways as I've financially been able to.. whether it was just keeping in contact with everyone and finding what they were in need of and keeping an eye out for those items when I was out and about (because a lot of items were out of stock when they went to the store) to telling people a known location to purchase meat. I gave a gentleman half of my order at Kroger because his card was declined. He had a little boy with him. I wish I could have been able to purchase his tab for him but I wasn't able to do so financially. I've also picked up breakfasts and lunches from school and taken them to a family that didn't have a vehicle. There's another family I took 2 gallons of milk, bread, oatmeal, and cereal to bc they didn't have any breakfast for their children. I don't have a lot but try to do what I can in any way possible for others. This is a really neat idea that you're doing. It's a great feeling helping others in need and it typically goes without notice. Thanks for the opportunity and good luck to all

We distributed green and pink cards with a note to put the green card in a front window and if you need something and can't or are scared to get out put the pink one in the window with a note of what you need and someone will drop it on your porch for you. Now we drive around town checking everyones cards to make sure everyone has what they need. There are several elderly and health compromised residents in town so we are making sure they are safe and have what they need.

My previous comment disappeared, so posting again. I was my way to my car, leaving my local Sam's Club, when I noticed an elderly woman trying to load her car. She had several heavy itemsin her cart including a case of Coke, water, etc... I stopped and asked her if I could help her, she said yes, and I proceeded to load her car. I then took her cart to cart storage. This is something my wife and I do often.

I live in Illinois and my town is currently under an order for the residents to stay at home. I dont have my family for support. I am least educated to homeschool my children. They don't speak my native language. We have always spoken English at home. My co-worker/good friend stays with me during the day to help me homeschool my children while doing the regular daytime work from my home. He helped me with the home project I have been unable to complete because of my busy schedule and lack of knowledge. He has been a blessing and it truely shows especially during a hardship like this.

I stood in line for 3 hours to get my sisters family, my dad, my 27 year old son and us meat at a meat market. My boyfriend and I each got the max of each meat and distributed it between the family. I should have stayed home because I am high risk but I did what my mom would have done. My dad has bad copd so he didn’t need to go out and my sister was self quarantined after traveling. All of us are good for a month.

Matthew Coates

March 25, 202008:42 pm

I shop on behalf of my compromised parents. While out one day last week, I was in a store and there was grocery cart shortage - I had to wait for an available cart. While I was waiting, a young mom came in with her toddler, you could tell she was wary of people judging her for having her child out in this climate and she most likely wanted to just grab a few things and go. I ended up scouting the parking lot for someone returning a cart and I took it back inside to her. She needed it more than me! I didn’t have a little one in a carrier to try to lug around. She was very appreciative and I got my own cart soon after. I’m not trying to pat myself on the back, but sometimes doing something nice is the way to go.

My 70 year old neighbor's 3 pound Yorkipoo was lost 2 days ago. She could not come outside due to being high-risk for the corona vurus. My neighbor was distraught. I decided to drive around our neighborhood and a nearby neighborhood to look for him. I looked for over 3 hours and put up flyers. Two days later, someone called and said he had found the dog but really wanted to keep him. I told him about the neighbor and how she considers the dog as a son. The man in the phone reconsidered and said I could come back him up. When I returned the dog to my neighbor, her face lit up like a Christmas tree.

Good evening I just wanted to leave my act of kindness on this blog post I have actually for the last week and a half been dealing with my girlfriend getting diagnosed with Guillain-Barre syndrome and if any of you know what that is it's an autoimmune illness that eats away at your nervous system and the things that I've had to do for her a lot of you would not do for others like help her walk help her eat help her use the restroom help her clean herself and much more this has been a trying time but it's built the character in me to the next level of my personal Being. I've learned that you don't run away from things when you love people you run towards them so hopefully this can bring awareness for Guillain-Barre syndrome to other people because it is a very scary ordeal to have to go through thank you for your time

There was an elderly gentleman in line in front of me... before the lockdown. He had to packs of TP in his cart. They told him he could only have one. I knew, as a Nurse, it probably took all he had to come out & get the few supplies he needed. Since I didn’t need any, I bought the 2nd pack & gave it to him . He was very sweet & appreciative. Small gesture to try & keep him safe!

My husbands barber just recently got married (they saved and paid for this), she had also been working extra hard to get her own shop up and running. When we learned that non essential business were going to close here in VA, we reached out and sent her $$ to help her get through. And we’ve shared what we could with a couple of our neighbors. We didn’t do it for recognition but it is truly disheartening to see good, kind, hardworking people lose their livelihood. It’s also a good time to teach my teenagers a strong lesson in helping others and how a little kindness can go a long way.

Today I took to our nextdoor app. I found a person in need of toilet paper, I was able to leave them 4 rolls on my porch for a pickup. Then I found a mother looking for activities for her preschooler, and I luckily had 3 workbooks. My kiddos also took to our bike path and shared inspiring messages for all to enjoy. Spreading cheer is so important these days!

Random act of kindness... that’s a hard one. I think in general everyone I have run into has given a piece of themselves or been given kindness. From the lady at the grocery store that needed the last loaf of bread for her ill husband and all the customers (including me) helped to make sure she got what she needed, to the floods of our small town going to the local bakery in hopes to keep them in business during this hard time. All in all I think the pandemic has made everyone stop and think, be thankful for what we have and what we can give.

Recently I was at Walgreens and there was an elderly lady at the pharmacy. She didn't have enough for all her prescriptions. I offered to pay for those that she did not have the money to pay for. We need to take care of our elderly! They once was responsible for us.

Personally, I've been making sure my mother in law has what she needs during this challenging time. Also have sent cards to those I know cannot get out, and would like to send some cards to the local nursing homes. I've seen people preparing meals for others, as well as gathering supplies (and even toilet paper!) to hand out to neighbors as well as strangers. As hard as this stretch may seem, many people are coming together to help and support our community. Thanks for offering the giveaway! :)

I have tried to make sure that I reach out to others during this time especially with our social distancing. Every day I try to touch five people with an encouraging word, a text with my daily devotional, or may a song that gave me some positive vibes. I’m a happy person and not being able to be with other and talk in sociology setting has taken some getting use to, so not only do I think this helps my friends and colleagues (I work in state gov and we are still in contact with our families everyday ensure our children are safe) I think it also gives me hope for mankind.

On Monday while checking out at Fry's the line's were 30 minutes long. The lady in front of my husband realized she didn't have her wallet. She said she could call her husband but it would take him a few minutes to get there. People behind my husband were grumbling. My husband paid for her 52.00 bill. By the time he checked out her husband's was there and repaid my husband. Poor lady I can just imagine her having to wait in a 30 minute line again.

As a teacher I was concerned about little ones at home without food or school materials.

About two months I was in Krogers just picking up a few random things I needed for dinner and grabbed a gallon on milk. I was checking out and was short on cash and an older gentlemen behind me offered to pau for the milk I was putting back. I told that man thank you and that he definitely had a blessing coming his way. I was grateful when i got home because my son just finished off the rest of our milk. People can be a blessing in so many ways.

My husband had to have heart surgery one week ago. The nurses in the hospital here are the kindest, most caring people I have ever witnesses. They are putting themselves in harms way everyday, but you would never know it! They were more concerned that I had food, hot tea and coffee. I wasn't even the patient! I witnessed many acts of kindness in the last two weeks❤

When things happen like what we're going thru now, many of us want to help. I am 65, so I can't do it all anymore, but I was able to snag some toilet paper for a friend the other day when she couldn't find it anywhere in town. I found some at Aldi's. Then I signed up at my church to be a helper to the elderly that call in with needs. And just today I sewed masks to give to health care workers. I love helping! I feel like it is what I was made to do.

Kim Kenny

March 25, 202006:22 pm

Since the hoarding went into full swing, we had been unable to buy any toilet paper. We went to store after store after store. On the 9th day of searching I made a Facebook post about our frustrations, not only about not being able to find essentials that we need but also about our loss of income due to our jobs shutting down. Within just a few minutes, several of our friends sent messages offering to give us some of their toilet paper & other essential items. In times like this, that really means a lot! We have some really great friends!

I spent last Friday (payday!!!) going to several local shops and restaurants, buying food and other items just to show support to those businesses. These recent events have shown me the importance and power of buying local! The thought of losing any of these dear local businesses breaks my heart. Hopefully I’ve helped a few out! You can do the same in your community, if you are able to pay it forward right now!

During this pandemic; while @ the local CVS. Ayoung mom had her baby within a carrying swing across her; after making her purchase of goodies. After doing my CVS return; while exiting the parking lot. I notice the young mom was walking within uniform & sadly the baby wasn't covered up for this COVID-19 airborne virus. I was a SINGLE YOUNG MOM, MYSELF...w/ 2 girl's ( 21yrs. & 23yrs.) I must state it wasn't easy; during my "FIGURE IT OUT DAYS" back when. But always made a way... So, I pulled my vehicle over and gabe the single mom a ride to her destination. Plus, some kind advice about wrapping up her baby for protection healtwise. A sentimental moment while being kind @ the same time. -Mrs.KC @ Savannah,Ga.

I just recently went to Kroger to grab a couple of items we needed and they were out of sanitizer wipes at the time. I had some hand sanitizer in my purse so I grabbed a paper towel and as I was using it a mother who had a small child came in and saw there was no sanitizer for her to use in the cart. I offered her some of mine and an older gentleman asked if he could use some as well. It’s the little things that make a big impact

My husband works in manufacturing and he has a co-worker who has been here from Arizona for several months. While, the co-worker works nearly 60 hours a week to provide for for his family back in Arizona, he did not have time to buy groceries. He was finally able to get to the grocery store come to find out that the shelves were empty due to all the panic buying. Because we believe in helping others, we didn’t hesitate to go through our freezer and cupboards to give him food.

When all of the nursing homes began to announce that they would either limit visitations or cancel them all together, due to the coronavirus, my heart broke. I've worked in a nursing home and many of the elderly do either do not receive visitors or it's very limited. So, my boys (11 & 8) and I went into action. I contacted 3 nursing homes, in our area, and asked them if we could send mail. Once they confirmed that we could, we cut out hearts, wrote letters, decorated American flags and put messages of hope in the cards. It was such a blessing for us and we found out the residents loved them.

I’ve seen or heard of so many acts of kindness recently. Our family had our breakfast paid for in Chick-fil-A drive-thru by a stranger! A friend was in line and needed two packages: one toilet paper & one paper towels. The checkout clerk said she could only have one or the other, I think she was confused but she would not give in. So the gentleman behind her said if you need it I will buy it for you. She went to pay him for the paper towels and he would not take the money. He helped her out when she really needed it!

There have been so many acts and truly a blessing to witness. Local friends are sewing face mask for workers at a local hospital. A very close friend of mine is fostering two puppies from a local shelter due to them running low on foster due to the virus. My daughter's teacher left a really sweet gift in the mailbox for my daughter. It's a picture of them together at school. She misses her teacher so much. I recently donated to help a local couponer raise money for her family in the Philippines. They are stuck in their homes and if they did not have money to buy food. She was able to raise over $1200. That was enough to feed her family and other families in the village. Not just for the next month but for the next 3 months. Lots of love coming out of all this craziness.

While doing our grocery shopping my husband and I helped every elderly person we saw trying to find items and helped load their groceries on the belt at checkout. We also made sure our parents had everything they needed and gave my mother in law some of our toilet paper because she wasn’t able to find any. #dogoodforothersandgoodwillcomebacktoyou

March 25, 202003:44 pm

I was at Kroger getting groceries and toilet paper! I noticed an elderly couple looking for some toilet paper and offered to give them the one I found. I was headed to my car and it was pouring outside and noticed the same couple, they had gotten a cart full and didn’t have a bag for the toilet paper which had fallen out the cart! I made sure they were able to get everything to their car and not have wet toilet paper before they had gotten home! I might not have gotten toilet paper at the store but I’m glad the elderly couple were able to get some!

She orchestrated in having a Virtual Party and the proceeds will go towards finding the displaced students a place to stay. A party with a purpose. We Wildcats always have each other backs and I can't wait to donate to the cause. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to enter this contest.

I've been limiting how much I'm shopping at the moment, but I always check with my parents to see if they need anything and deliver it to them.

I really don't like telling people about my acts of kindness so I will instead tell you how my community has decided to come together and help the elderly. Our police department has a drop off where they take donations and people are offering to shop for them which is awesome in itself. I only commenting to show others there is hope even in the darkest hours. Please give this gift card to someone who works in the frontlines as they deserve it more than any of us ever could.

Emily

March 24, 202010:32 pm

I’ve been finding my favorite Kroger employees to make sure they know that I appreciate them. Some of these people are the most friendly happy go lucky employees and I have seen the best down in their face. They are working long hours and people are mean to them over things they can’t control. A simple thank you goes a long way.

She took me up on it. I was glad to do it for all they are doing for us.

March 24, 202012:51 am

Hi, my experience at my local Kroger was that I was walking down the aisle of toilet paper and my kroger just restocked that’s morning and paper towel and there was a old lady walking very slowly with her cane and she came up to me and asked me what was the price of the toilet paper and I told her I asked her if she wanted one I’ll put one in her cart and she did , maybe it wasn’t the greatest thing to do but I did feel good myself at the end that I was able to help her out especially cause there was chaos

Elena

March 24, 202012:46 am

My local fire department did a delivery of groceries to those in need and it drew a lot of donations from the community. It was an awesome thing to behold! So many people coming together to take care of one another. Most of the recipients are either disabled or elderly.

Harley Donnelly

March 23, 202011:13 pm

I’m a Gordmans employee. Before we closed down due to all the crazy going on currently, my manager made sure that all of us employees had everything that we needed to last us the next 2 weeks we are closed. She then insisted that we all take a roll of toilet paper home with us to hold us over, since local stores are struggling to keep TP stocked. She went out of her way to make sure that we were going to be okay, and her actions didn’t go unnoticed!

Stephanie F

March 23, 202010:44 pm

She offered to pay but she had already helped so many with her page of info. Also been helping working parents get the food delivery from our local school. Working together will help us all till this rough time is over.

I’ve been using my small stockpile to help those around me with what they can no longer find in stores. I live in a complex that has a lot of older people and it makes me happy to be able to help with what I can.

Stacey Enzor

March 23, 202009:20 pm

Even though my family had enough supplies to last us a few weeks, my 87 year old neighbor did not. She was recovering from pneumonia, so I went to the grocery store specifically for her. I waited in line for over an hour to check out. I was able to get everything on her list, so it was worth it.

Lisa Hayes

March 23, 202009:01 pm

An elderly lady told me she had ordered her groceries but they had no sugar at the store so I took her I pounds of sugar and made sure she had plenty of other stuff. She's very sweet :)

Amy S

March 23, 202008:53 pm

A baker friend has been sharing her sourdough starter with people who want to try this type of baking during our time at home. I fortunately had grabbed a couple extra bags of flour at Kroger before the panic set in for most folks, so I took her up on her offer. She could have asked for money but she did not.

Traci

March 23, 202008:42 pm

A couple of days ago I arrived at Kroger right when they opened at 7am. I lined up with the numerous others outside. An elderly lady, probably around 90 years old, was standing next to me. She was sweet as could be and very slow moving. As the doors opened, people rushed passed her as if she weren’t there. Even though I have a big cast on my leg due to 2 fractures, I offered to pick up what she needed for her. I didn’t think twice about helping her and was sickened by the others who just flew by her, offering zero help. I hope we can all be kind to one another during this time, and remember....one day you may be that elderly, slow moving person who could use some help.

Sarah Hinton

March 23, 202007:10 pm

I shopped for groceries for the elderly. I have also been on the receiving end of kindness. We went to Kroger to shop for my mom’s groceries. They didn’t have any frozen chicken. My mom was worried because she hadn’t seen any in the frozen or canned meat area either. Another customer gave us their package of frozen chicken and said they had plenty at home! It was wonderful to see people sharing.

Lesa Bishop

March 23, 202005:01 pm

What I want to say is I am grateful Kroger is now offering senior hours. 7am-8am certain days if the week. We are 62 and 64. Not too old but still afraid of contacting the virus. I am in the process of cooking things for my parents that live a half hour away that are 85 and 87. They need to stay home. I don’t even go near them. They tried the Kroger pickup Saturday and said it went really well for them I am glad to say. This virus has allowed them to see another way of shopping they can use.

Jill Cook

March 23, 202004:57 pm

I ran to Kroger to purchase a few necessities yesterday and was blessed enough to have even been able to purchase toilet paper for my family. (Yes, we needed it. Lol) While in my car reviewing my receipt a couple approached me after seeing the toilet paper and asked if there was any more, I told them I believe that all of it had been grabbed already. So I shared what I had. They asked to pay me, but instead, I asked them to pay it forward.

Esther

March 23, 202001:25 pm

I was at Costco waiting in line for toilet paper. I was towards the front so I was able to get what I needed. On my way back I saw a mom hand toilet paper to an older couple who was at the end of the line. She tells them here I wasn't sure if you were going to be able to get any. I don't need it. The couple was grateful. I was touched by her act of unselfishness.

I recently was actually in a Kroger's a witnessed a older gentleman trying to get an item from the top shelf while he was on a motorized scooter, he had a cane and couldn't reach , many passed him, I told my son to watch the buggy for a minute and let me help this man. He wanted 3 of the item because it was hard for him to get Everytime, so sad people ignore others .

I’ve given a lot of my cleaning and body wash stockpile to elderly or the single parents I’ve seen Asking for help on Facebook. In my state there’s no where to buy those things without it being a Black Friday brawl or super expensive that not everyone can afford especially now with our jobs laying us off.

I work at a senior and disabled high-rise building and my job as the service coordinator is to make sure my residents have services and resources in place to continue living independently. During this pandemic I have been working daily to help my seniors as well as others. Going out picking up donations of food and supplies. Contacting community resources and agencies for necessitates that our seniors are having trouble finding as well as keeping them safe.

Keep being positive! I went to Walmart yesterday and EVERYONE was being so kind and patient with each other. The youth in our church are making phone calls to the elderly each day offering to run errands for them.

I have been shopping for several people so they don't have to get out to go to the store. My number 1 place to shop is Krogers. Love following KrogerKrazy so I can know what deals there is. Thank you for all you do.

Hi! Thank you for continuing to share awesome deals, coupons, and ad previews. I love your positivity! We certainly need this now more than ever. I recently received an act of kindness. I was in search of toilet paper because I heard that our local Kroger had some. When I got to the aisle, someone pointed me to the last few packs. She was a fellow shopper who was so kind to help hand them out. I picked up one pack leaving the other pack for someone else. In the U-Scan aisle, the cashier was so kind as well. I only had that one pack of tp to purchase so she brought me right up to where she was and rang me up. It was an all around experience of kindness.

March 21, 202010:22 pm

Thank you for sharing all the positivity during this tough time of social distancing! It inspired me to buy a restricted quantity item (eggs) for another family. It aches me to see the elderly were in masks with cart full of groceries.

Every time I go shopping, I call my elderly neighbor to see what she needs. Especially if I am getting good deals so that we get the most savings. And she gives me her weekly coupons too.

March 19, 202011:18 pm

I have an elderly neighbor whose husband was recently placed in a nursing home and with all that is going on she is not allowed to visit anymore. She is 78 and he is 82. She is barely able to even speak to him on the phone. She was going to buy a phone w a cord so she could call him. He is lucid sometimes and understands what is happening but not all the time. I didn't think she should be out and about so I went to our Nextdoor App and asked if anyone had an extra phone they were not using. Someone did and I picked it up and will give it to her so she does not have to go to the store nor pay for it. She will have to take it to the Home but they will not let her inside but then she can call him whenever she wants. I also went to 3 stores for her looking for toilet paper, a roast and potatoes. I found all of the items and brought them to her.

Went to fill my car with gas at local Kroger where I had enough points to get it for only 10 cents per gallon. I did not use all my allotted 40 gallons, so I pulled up and gave the rest to the couple behind me in a big truck. I think I saved them about $40! Just told them to fill up and pay it forward!

Cindy Gilbert

March 19, 202008:55 pm

My husband was having lunch right before all the restaurants had to close their doors and overheard one of the waitresses talking about how she couldn’t find toilet paper anywhere and she had 5 boys at home. My husband went back to his apartment and picked up 8 of the 9 rolls he had and took them back and gave to waitress. Thank you for all the deals that allowed me to have extra toilet paper in my household to share.

Natalie

March 19, 202008:23 pm

There is an elderly couple that lives on my street. Before I ran to Smith's, I texted to see what I could pick up for them so they won't have to go out to the store! It is snowy, and I don't want them risking getting sick.

March 19, 202012:51 pm

I have made it a goal the last few years to try and do at least one act of kindness daily- even something as little as bringing in a grocery shopping cart for someone can make their day. It’s important to spread kindness especially when everyone is in such a surreal world right now.

Mary Juszynski

March 19, 202010:59 am

Our local King Soopers has been absolutely amazing as people stocked up and cleaned the shelves bare. Many of them worked through the night and come back as soon as possible to continue stocking so those in need can get essentials. I wrote a letter to the Manager telling them that they were all my hero's and how much I appreciated them and left special buttons telling them how great they were! One of the workers in the florist department knew that we are in a high risk group and as I was walking out she gave me flowers...moved me to tears. Thank you for all you do...this is one of my favorite sites.

Cathy Hewlett

March 19, 202010:41 am

When I did my grocery shopping at Kroger this week I bought a big package of cookies from the deli and left them with the cashier to share with all of the employees in the break room as a way to thank them for all they do. I also took extra boxes of cereal and soup cups to help fill a giving box we have in the center of our town.

I was at a gas station and a man and his young daughter probably about 7 or 8 years old she wanted a coke and her dad told her he didn’t have enough money so I bought the little girl a coke and a candy bar. She was very very appreciative.. It just melted my heart with the smile she had.

Kelsea

March 19, 202006:43 am

I'm not made of money for sure but every little bit counts. Although I went and stocked up on essentials for the kids to be home from school and social distancing, while putting away the groceries we went through all the cabinets and pulled out food we would not eat that just kept getting pushed aside. Donated to those who would find more uee in this troubling time.

Barbara

March 19, 202006:07 am

Although I believe all acts of kindness should be done all the time and don't necessarily need to be shared. A couple of other ladies and I talked to the manager at Smart and final to let the Senior citizens first. He did, just horrible that other patrons that showed up way after just barged in without waiting for their turn. Now many stores are giving the first opening hour to senior citizens

Kim V

March 19, 202002:58 am

It’s not an act of kindness really but during all of the chaos of late, it made feel better. While waiting in a LONG line at Kroger lately, the lady in front of me turned around and started talking. We talked about all of this craziness and how scary it was. By the time it was her turn to check out, we had shared several laughs and felt a bit of normalcy in this nightmare. It was so nice to have a break in the worry!

Sue C.

March 19, 202001:47 am

With all the hoarding going on and general increase of people buying groceries and supplies, we are experiencing empty shelves in all of our stores and with talking to others, you realize that your not alone in this struggle to find what store(s), has what you need. So, my family came up with the idea and started a Facebook Corona Virus Support page for our family members, friends, and friends of friends. This way we all have one place to let each other know of family needs pertaining to food and household supplies. Then when anyone goes shopping, they are on the lookout for what people are in need of, posting what stores have what , and sometimes just picking up what others need, as we find things available and taking it to them. It has really touched me to see just how much we've all come together and are making sure that everyone has got even the basic necessities.

Tanya Edwards

March 19, 202001:43 am

Because of this site and you hard working ladies I have a pretty nice stockpile. I heard from a friend of a friend that a young lady with three babies under the age of 3 had no baby wipes and other essentials. I was able to bring her a large bag of items to get her by. My kids , husband and I all carry angel soft in our cars to give to those who can not find any TP. In the last few weeks I have seen the horrible side of humanity ( one of my kids' friend - a single dad - was held at knife point outside Dillons for his Tp), And I have seen the best in people. Our local chatter FB page has asked those without to let people know what they need so whoever can help, does. It is heartwarming. Thank you for all you do Kroger Krazy!

March 19, 202012:41 am

I donated several bags of groceries and toiletries to TN tornado relief. A lot of the items were from my stockpile from couponing and using your blog

Krissie Daniels

March 18, 202011:48 pm

I’ve not witnessed a single act of kindness, but a community of kindness. Since the social distancing, in my community I’ve seen people pull resources together to feed children, exchange information about stores carrying needed products, and just being kinder. What started out as something that could’ve broken a community apart, we chose to stick together and stand strong :)

Valeria Garza

I went to the Michoacana Mexican Meat market to buy 3 tacos!! There was a very long line due to alot of restaurants being closed. So as l am leaving man in a wheelchair approached me and asked me for a taco l sai the line is sooooooo long and l gave him 1 of my tacos. So l guess it was an act of kindness!

Kali Winward

March 18, 202010:40 pm

I have been following you for years and I have a great stock pile. I was able to give packages of coveted toilet paper to my neighbors who were out and my parents. I was also able to help my friend with diapers when she was out and couldn't find any at the stores. Thank you for teaching me how to save money when shopping. I feel because of all your deals you have shared, I can help people get through these tough times. I'm hoping I can help more people.

We have a neighborhood Facebook page. A neighbor posted about a single mom with 4 kids who had just gotten out of a women’s shelter. She was struggling to feed her kids since school closed. she doesn’t have a car and can’t get to the school lunch drop off points. Since I coupon I had plenty. Sent her 8 bags of groceries and personal care products. I can’t imagine being in that situation. My heart just went out to her. I’m truly blessed.

There was a woman with her toddler that walked past a homeless man today that was sitting on the bench near the grocery store. She asked him if he needed anything and he said something to drink would be nice. She offered him her leftover Chick-fil-A and he said he would gladly take that. Then she went to buy two cokes for him and his wife, who was at their tent in the woods. It did my heart good to see that because that little baby is learning to love each and every person no matter what their situation is.

This past Friday, I was in a mostly empty produce department at Kroger. I overhead the produce manager encouraging the produce associate that he was doing a great job, thanked him for his work, and they would all get through this as a team. The associate looked like he had just been given a big hug. That has really stuck with me all week.

Dianne Parchman

I found toilet paper and bottled water. Limit of 2 per person so I bought 2 of each. One to share with my mom so she can stay home and not exposed

Nicole

March 18, 202004:48 pm

I try to coupon the best that I can and I donate items to those that may need them. My husband is also a pretty good handy man and volunteers to help people out with their cars/houses etc. Especially in this time of need we all need to stick together to conquer. Have a great day!

I went to the grocery store last weekend to try to get just the basic necessities for my family of 5. I was unable to find hamburger meat, milk and lunch meat. I winded up posting on Facebook and asking my friends if they knew of a store that had those items. Instead of directing me to a store, one of my friends brought me those groceries from her own groceries. What a blessing! So I have carried that forward and I am now giving some of my friends eggs from my chickens.

Christina Fields

March 18, 202003:14 pm

This was my 15 yr old daughters idea that I backed up. We decided that when we used the mobile app for Chick fla, we would use my points that I normally save for Christmas, to buy food for a homeless boy. We brought it back to him and he was gone, so we found a homeless vet and gave it to him. Over the years I have told both my kids, just give if you can if you get a feeling it could help, it is not our job to know where the money goes and make judgements, someone else has that job.

Laura

March 18, 202003:07 pm

Our school has a free food pantry outside that anyone can give/take from. I was given the opportunity to check on it each day and reach out for donations as needed. This has given my kids and I something to look forward to each day and we’ve enjoyed seeing so many people eager to help keep it stocked. We’ve also seen the need is real in our community as the items get used quickly.

I just want to say that I really appreciate the time you put into all of this. Even though I already know how to coupon and am always looking out for deals, your all inclusive lists have helped me better plan for feeding my family. We should share more positivity no matter what!! I am currently unemployed but have what I need, despite shelves being empty and my little goes a long way. With everything going on, I have been able to share w. my community group, friends and family. I am not selling it. We just need to help each other!

I saw this touching story on Fox. An elderly couple sat on parking lot of grocery calling out to people. One girl went over to see what they wanted. They were frightened to go into the store. She went for them. They gave their list and $100 to a perfect stranger. She loaded their groceries and gave them their change but didn't think to get their name to help in future. This still brings tears to my eyes.

Amber G.

Thanks to weekly savings from Kroger Krazy before recent events, I was able to fill my car with food, toiletries, hand sanitizer, LYSOL, and other items to help a family without transportation and who is adjusting to their special needs children being out of school (eating extra meals at home). Thanks, Kroger Krazy!

It was sweet. My mom is handicapped. She needs certain things for certain needs. Whith the whole virus going on and people emptying stores my mom wasn't able to get her gloves. She has to use a certain brand otherwise she'd get infections. They don't have much money to just go out and buy what they need when all this happened. So my mom posted online saying she needs help and needs a certain brand gloves and if anyone has it to please inform her as she desperately needs them. A sweet lady went above and beyond. She went all over town to make sure my mom was able to have her gloves. She picked them up and dropped them off for my mom. She said at no charge too. Everyone went above and donated the gloves they had.

An elderly man, who just so happens to be a former neighbor of mine, came to my office yesterday. During his time in the office he had mentioned the whole town was out of milk. I offered to get him a gallon from the nearest town 30 miles away because I was going anyway. I even delivered it to him as soon as I got back to town.

Jo A Short

March 18, 202010:30 am

I went to Kroger( I retired from there) this morning at 7:OOAM. Unbelievable, not opened yet, but the line outside was very very long. Remember I am retired. I can do this. The lady in front of me was also retired. But the young gentleman behind us was very nervous. he had to be at work and was thinking of leaving. He said he only needed a few items for the family. We told him to go ahead of us, which he did. We all need to perform small acts of kindness.

Gina Travers

March 18, 202010:23 am

First off i wanna say thank you to you for still posting deals because yes we all need to still save money. And thank you for doing this giveaway because let's face it we all ñeed some help right now and gift card can sure buy some needed food for our kids and family.so thank you for your act of kindness now online I have seen many acts of kindness but I have to mention one my hubby of 25 years did because let's face it he becoming a grumpy man the older we get. Just kidding. But we went to Walmart and as people were going crazy over toilet paper and items throughout the whole store. He only grabbed 2 packs of toilet paper. And said I will only take 2 so other will have some. Now it may seem small but for him that's progress as normally he would take 10 carts full while screaming at everyone to get away from his toilet paper. Just kidding he isn't that bad. But I found it sweet and wished more would think of other. One that i saw was a guy saw a women struggling her cart full of toilet paper and kept falling on floor he got out of his car and helped her to her car unloaded her whole cart of toilet paper and took her empty cart back up to store. Really sweet small acts of kindness but that's what we gotta do. What was crazy is toilet paper is normally $6for named brand now we had to pay $15 for store brand at walmart. Broke my heart to spend $35 on just 2 packs of toilet paper lol. Stay safe everyone

Our small community has really pulled together through all of this!

So many community partners have made an effort to donate and help out.

I think this is the most generous random act of kindness I have seen in the midst of all the corona virus craziness!! Please continue to be kind!

The clerk at a liquor store my husband frequents :) was fretting over not having any toilet paper. Plus he had a new baby at home and didnt have any hand sanitizer. My husband told me this when he got home. I gave him a large pk of tp, little remedies(from kroger) baby wipes and a 1/2 bottle of hand sanitizer from my car (we only had 1 ourselves at home) to bring to the clerk. He was so grateful that he cried.

My local Ralph's was crowded and people were complaining about the wait to check out. I passed out several reusable plastic bags to the last 3 people in each line (I have a zillion at home because I either forget to take them or don't take enough.). The mood changed and conversations started up. I even forgot about the wait. Made my day and put us all in a much better mood.

I am a nurse, currently working hard to help triage patients for testing for COVID19 as needed. My husband works for Kroger & doing overtime to try to help keep shelves stocked. Meanwhile, our son is working hard at Amazon to keep up with all the online orders. We are all doing our part to help our community, including buying groceries for those less fortunate and unable to physically get out to get them.

Kroger employees are really busy now, with extra cleaning and frantic restocking. Take note of their names and when you get those receipt surveys, give these people a pat on the back! Recognize them by name! Don't just recognize those who help you personally. Observe and record those who toil in the background. Their pay raises depend greatly upon these surveys, and recognizing their efforts in these worrisome times will help them so much! ♥ I love my Kroger's! ♥♥♥♥♥ And I REALLY love the Plymouth, Indiana, Clicklist team! ♥♥♥♥♥

Sonja Banks

March 18, 202009:16 am

On the Next Door app, someone started a post about who is looking for certain items and then others can either pick it up or tell people where they saw it. I needed toilet paper- a random person got an extra pack for me and once they messaged me for my address, even brought it to my house and wouldn’t take my money. I found baby wipes and remember someone needed some so I messaged that person and got them to her... there’s been countless other people doing this, all through 1 person starting a post about it. A great way for a community to help each other!

My grandsons and I recently made cards and delivered gift bags of items to elderly members of our community that needed them. I am lucky I follow your site and coupon, so I have plenty in my stockpile to share. I did this has I wanted to show my grandsons that everyone needs to come together and help. I explained the elderly cant shop like we can as they may get sick from the virus and stay need to stay home so my youngest one thought he would make a I love you card for each bag.

Hi my coworker father has cancer and during this time she can’t find any toilet paper. So I got up early before I went to work and stood in line at the grocery store so I can get them so toilet paper. She was so happy that I though of them and did something so nice for her and her father. My act of kindness.

At my Kroger on 3/16/2020, I was shopping and the employees that were working were so nice to customers while the supply of items were out of stock due to the COVID-19. I saw one employee assisting a customer that was in an electronic shopper unable to get something off the shelf with their cane. Another employee was helping a customer with picking some veggies that had a handicap. It's good to know there are still a some good people willing to help others. This made my day. Thanks Michelle Collins

I work for my County Board of Education. My county has cancelled school for the kids, employees still working, during this virus. We live in a very rural area and a lot of kids only get fed when they are at school. My school system has stepped up and is preparing meals and the bus drivers are delivering the meals on their routes to the kids. The kids are waiting at their bus stops at a certain time and the bus driver pulls up and gives them a bag lunch/breakfast. On the days that the employees are off churches like mine are stepping up and making the runs and delivering food. We are all donating food so that kids who would normally only get meals at school are getting meals at home. It is a good feeling knowing that kids are being fed and not going hungry during this time and also using coupons to help others.

My daughter was at the Kroger gas station recently, and the card reader on the pump wouldn't work. She and another lady walked up to the cashier, and the other lady said she would pay for my daughter's gas! She and her husband are both not working because of the virus, so this was an awesome blessing to them.

March 18, 202007:57 am

I've not told anyone about this but this is the only way to enter the raffle. A couple of months ago, I was behind a woman who had a small order, and kept putting some things off to the side as her order was rung up. When she was done, I gestured to the cashier to charge me for those items and give them to her. Since then, I've paid for other orders, either in front or behind me in line. Random acts of kindness. I'm not certain who gets the better feeling.

I will have say, as we are all in a state of flux with our kids facing a lost semester of school and panicked people emptying shelves at the grocery store; the teachers!!!!! The teachers, retired teachers and future teachers, who are helping their own children at home, sending messages out and offering help, tutoring ,teaching supplies and resources for parents and just offering to lend an ear! That is a true act of kindness!

Cindy

March 18, 202007:18 am

There were 4 small packs of toilet paper left on the shelf at my store. They were pushed way in the back where they could not be seen. My purpose for shopping was toilet paper. Instead of buying them, I climbed up and pushed them forward for someone else. I usually don’t tell my good deeds but hopefully others will start doing this too and think of our elderly and those that can’t fight these crowds. Praying this all gets better soon!!❤️

There is an elderly person that is my neighbor. I do random acts of kindness for him. Sometimes I pick up his favorite food, drink, groceries, medicine, or take him to the grocery or doctor. He lost his wife five years ago and recently he hasn’t been getting around good. I actually feel like I am gaining more from this friendship than he is. He has so much wisdom and so many old stories. I truly enjoy his company. I wish more people could see how rewarding the elderly can be. I am not submitting this for recognition. I just want to challenge others to help the elderly! They need us!

A friend and I run a non profit organization called Pay it Forward Jefferson County. We've been blessed to help our community for over 6 years.

In our community in the last week there have been numerous acts of kindness. People immediately started food drives for the school kids, and volunteers for child care and senior services popped up. A local coffee shop is carrying paper towels and toilet paper for sale. Personally my husband and I are both at risk and 3 different people have offered to shop for us. It is truly inspiring!

So we have a local cattle farmer that sets up and sells barbecue and sides. Yesterday he had over 85 pounds of pulled pork hotdogs and sides that he gave away to anyone in the community that could not afford to buy dinner due to the hardship that people have encountered due to the virus. There were so many people that came out to support him for what he was doing for the community. Great to see in this crazy time we are living in.

My husband recently fractured a bone in his arm. On our way home from a doctor's appointment, we stopped at a local steak house to eat. Noticing my husband's right arm was in a sling, our waiter cut his meat for him before bringing it to the table. This act of kindness went above and beyond the call of duty and spoke well of his sensitivity to the needs of his customers.

In our small town, most like others their kroger and other stores have gone completely out of stock in almost everything. We have a Facebook group that focuses on giving away items to other families that are in need. We post what we have or what we are looking for and we as a community help each other. My fiance and I, live across from our town soup kitchen that is run by the same sweet lady who founded it so many years ago, and we give gift cards (to her request) to kroger to support the others in the community who are unable to support themselves. At this time, this is what this gift card will go to while my fiance and I are stable at the moment.

My mom and I were in Walmart last week, and an elderly woman struck up a conversation with my mom. She couldn't believe that she was able to find 2 small bottles of hand sanitizer in the store, very likely the last ones in the store. Still, she offered one to my mom, which I thought was very kind. My mom declined it, letting her know we had some at home and thanking her for her generosity.

During a recent Wal-Mart shopping trip, I assisted Michael, a Wal-Mart self checkout employee who was extremely busy prior to early closing, by retreiving an item another customer was purchasing as it did not have a tag to scan. Michael was slammed providing assistance to other customers and could not leave the area. I had just completed my purchase and offered to lend a helping hand to him and the other customer. A small act of kindness goes a long way!

Yesterday the city/county shut down restaurants/bars effective today (3/17) For the next 15 days. so we decided to have one last dine in dinner and tipped the waiter higher than the recommended amount to help relieve some of the burden that is to come from the shut down.

Anne

March 18, 202012:30 am

I would say the most kindness I have experienced and witnessed are customers shopping at grocery stores. Recently at two stores, I only had a fews items to checkout and both times a person in front of me let me go ahead because they had more items. I have made sure to smile and say nice things to store employees because they are been through the wringer this past week. I have also seen other customers doing the same. As you say, let's be the positivity that someone else needs.

My daughter in laws mother lives in a senior apartment by herself. She has rheumatoid arthritis and doesn't or can't go out much. My daughter and I decided to take her out to eat where ever she wanted. She decided on Mexican food and we told her to get whatever she wanted and to get something to go for dinner, but she said she probably wouldn't eat everything so that would be her dinner. She was so excited to get out and talk to someone and mostly people watch. More than likely I would give the card to my daughter in law to buy her groceries, especially in this times. Thanking you in advance should I be one of the lucky people.

Melinda Zamora

March 18, 202012:15 am

I've seen kindness this past week in different ways. Helping someone get something from the back of the shelf because it's the last of that item in the store. Store employees help wiping down carts as customers walk in. Giving up an item to someone else who needs it.

Melissa

March 18, 202012:07 am

An older lady wanted something that I had and the one she wanted was back ordered for 12 weeks so I gave her mine and I ordered it again and I’ll wait the 12 weeks cause she needed it in a week to give to her sister.

My husband and I live paycheck to paycheck and like everyone else it’s even harder to get by but while he was at Kroger buying a few necessary items he noticed a elderly woman on every isle ; she didn’t ask for anything but his heart was telling him she needed help when he checked out she was in the same line behind him and he noticed she seemed to be trying to get the total cost of her food items when he quietly told the cashier to take his money and pay her bill . As he was getting in his car she saw him at his car and thanked him with tears in her eyes . I was so proud of my husbands act of kindness and wish everyone to do the same

SHARON F PETRY

March 17, 202011:30 pm

I'm not sure if this would be considered paying it forward but when I hear of a family losing everything in a fire, flood, etc. I ask what sizes the woman is & if I happen to be the same size, I will donate clothes for work. Most people give sweats, shorts, t-shirts.. but I know if it were me, I would want something that I could wear to work. Plus, it helps me out by cleaning out my closet..

I drive alot of seniors around to appointments, errands and airports usually but with the state of the world no one is going anywhere. So, i contacted all of them to check on them and ask if they needed anything. I offered to shop for them so they do not have to get out and risk getting infected. I also have a small store in my house of my stockpile from couponing that i offered to let them virtually shop and i would sell items at my cost and no charge for delivery.

Patricia Smith

March 17, 202011:18 pm

My 13 year old daughter and I were at a bag your own market. When we came out, an elderly lady was parked beside us. She was starting to bag her groceries. My daughter ask her if she needed help. The lady said yes. My daughter felt honored to help her. I thought that was very thoughtful for my daughter to ask, given the way a lot of teenagers are today. I'm proud of her.

Amanda Rose

March 17, 202011:16 pm

I had a church friend pass two days ago, and while meal trains for the family is such a blessing, I thought about her animals. She loved her fur babies and I donated dog food. I try to "fill in the gaps" when helping people. Some smaller things are missed when helping others, and I know what it's like to go through difficult times. I remember going to the food bank but wondering how to feed my own dog.

I picked up an extra lunch for a child whose parent is homebound with no transportation. I also reached out to my elderly neighbor to see if she needed any toilet paper, hand sanitizer, etc. She knows that she can contact me if she needs anything.

What an uplifting idea. I try to do or say something nice everyday. Today I helped an elderly woman load her groceries (from Kroger, of course, into her car. Not a big deal, but the act made me feel good.

Yesterday, while at Costco, I witnessed two women give their large box of baby wipes to a mom-to-be. Costco had already run out and the mom-to-be is due next month and had three littles with her. I’ve also seen so much kindness in my Frys these past couple weeks! If I win one of the gift cards I plan to purchase what I can and donate it to a small town in my state that doesn’t have the plethora of stores available to them that I do.

Ashley S

March 17, 202010:18 pm

I let quite a few people who only had an item or two go in front of me in line when checking out the other day. I had a cart full and did not want them to have to wait. I try to do this whenever I can, especially with what is going on right now.

I have elderly neighbors who are no longer able to get out to buy groceries. From time to time I take them meals and have asked her to write out a grocery list so I can pick up groceries for them. Recently I fixed a meal for them and then prepared a basket of snacks, soup, crackers and fixings for sandwiches for them to use later. I told them it was for a picnic.

I am an assistant principal. Yesterday we received the call that we were to close. It was the 2nd most hectic day I have ever experienced in my career with 9/11 being the 1st. The teachers were told not to return for a month. I have to work the rest of the week. One of my teachers texted today and offered to bring me lunch after seeing what a tough day yesterday was to go through. It meant so much to know someone cared!

On Saturdays, i get groceries for an 86 year old shutin with heart failure and cancer. I also pick up groceries for my 88 year old mom when she does not feel like going to the store. I had to go to 3 different stores to find milk and sour cream. I called Krogers Marketplace in Conroe before i drove there and spoke to Jeff the Dairy Manager. He said they had some not a lot but some were still available. I went to Krogers and was able to fill their lists . I will be doing this for the time being to keep them safe.

I clip extra paper coupons each week (friends give me their coupons). So, whenever I’m at Kroger, I glance inside other people’s carts to see if I have a coupon for 1 or more of their items so I can give them a coupon for that item. I gave out several coupons on Sat., Mar. 14 to different shoppers. (As I do almost every Saturday.) People are (usually) very appreciate & thankful for the coupon(s) I give them. It always makes me feel so good to share coupons with others.

Thanks to all whom have showed kindness! Much love to each of you. I work in the healthcare system and trying to keep each patient positive with all this negativity one day at a time. It's amazing how a kind word, sweet smile or Just a simple 'it's going to be ok' goes a long way! We all need to stay positive and love thy neighbor. As far as giving I have helped my family with their nessicities each day whether it's food, toilet paper and paper towels thanks to my Kroger coupon shopping and woohoo deals! Thanks KrogerKrazy for posting the great deals. The one major act of kindness that sticks out the most is just socializing with the Residents at the nursing home on my breaks. (My past time job)They have been quarantined to their rooms with no visitors for at least 2 weeks. Just seeing them laugh at me and cut up with me made my heart smile. Hearing them say they love me and miss me.... priceless! Kindness costs nothing.

In line tonight at Kroger, a state trooper was buying his groceries. The scale wouldn’t weigh his produce so he says just forget because he didn’t want to hold up the line. The customer behind him offer to pay for the troopers things. The trooper accepted and thanked him. The trooper then handed the cashier $10 for the next person. I was fourth in line and was offered the $10. I was only purchasing items for a rebate so I passed. I wonder how long that $10 was passed along to get to the person that really needed it.

Today my neighbor (who has 5 foster children she just adopted AND her newly married son/wife (who were visiting from Texas where they live on the Army base (so 8 all together in her tiny house) asked if I knew what "Turmeric toilet paper" was. I said turmeric is a spice but I've NEVER heard it in toilet paper. She said that's all that was left on Amazon to buy and it won't be delivered for a month. So I texted another neighbor and she and I secretly put packages of tp on my neighbor's porch.

In my area there is no TP anywhere. People went crazy buying it all up. The store stocks it in the morning but I can't go because I have two grands, ages 6 and 7 staying home from school with me and I'm afraid to go out due to my asthma....can't risk me and my grands getting sick. By the time My husband gets home at 4:00pm the TP is gone. This evening my husband called a friend to check on him and he said that he works at the store and would go in the early morning and get us a couple packs of toilet paper for us. Thank goodness there are good people in the world.

Karla

As many know who work in retail it can be stressful, with all that people are preparing for even more right now. My husband works at a grocery store and was complimented by a customer who recognized his pleasant nature, kindness and willingness to help while still trying to keep the shelves stocked. He helped the customer a few days prior and that same customer saw him help others in the same manner. It means a lot when those we help take the time to personally say I recognize you and the great job you are doing , Keep it up. When those we work for may not take the time to say it.

When the county I live in no longer allowed the kids to come to school, it left a lot of kids hungry. The teachers were especially concerned because they knew there were kids in which the school breakfasts and lunches were their only meals they receive. After learning about this, local restaurants offered free meals to kids. It's amazing how a community comes together.

Only because you asked, Katie, will I share this. My neighbor was involved in a car accident on Friday of last week, in which her vehicle was totaled. She called me from the car rental office in a panic because the associates were very insensitive and for other reasons she was unable to get her rental car. She left the office walking much to my discouraging advice. My kids and I ended up picking her up on a road leading back to her home. Instead of taking her home, we decided to take her around to do the things she so badly wanted to get done. I was a small sacrifice but we were happy that she felt better to get her errands in order. I know what it's like to not be able to get around.

I checked our local stores in Ohio today and found 4 packs of the diapers. I packaged them up and they're on the way. She'll have them Friday. She was so relieved and thankfully. She offered to send me the money but I refused. Her response to me was "Well then, I'll share some with someone else that's in need". Made my heart happy.

While out shopping me and my mom spotted an elderly couple. This was during the panicked rush of people clearing shelves. They were barely getting around being elderly. We saw them enter, shop, and leave empty handed. My mom stopped to ask them what they were searching for. It was the nowhere to be found toilet paper. The husband had mentioned he and his wife with alzheimers were trying to just get toilet paper. We had just spent $2 per roll to buy what we had found just the store before. No way were we going to let them continue because they had a struggle to get through the small store we were at. We gave them 8 rolls to help get by. The husband offered to pay but nope wasn't having it. Was just trying to help look out for them during this time. Glad we were able to help. That's all that mattered to us as was the highlight throughout this ordeal. Pass along the blessings we have no matter how small.

Lauren

March 17, 202008:38 pm

This past Friday when everyone started wiping out the stores my husband went to the store to see what he could get on such short notice. I work first shift he work 3 shift so he was hoping to get everting we needed to get us though a couple of weeks we he did good but we we knew our daughter & son in-law with a 7 kids total between them (both on 2 nd marriage) knew they could not get a lot like a lot of others out there they live pay check to pay check. We could make sure they had a few things they would need & will help them as much as we can. Kroger had spaghetti sauce & spaghetti noodles on sale we got the a full diner for a few days I know it don’t sound like much but my son in-law lost his job 2 weeks before this so every penny counts. It takes a village to raise your children but when you are raising a team it takes a very tight village to keep them going. This is what a village does when times a crazy. 1 meal for 9 people with left overs was under $8.00. What a blessing to be able to help out on a few dinners.

Husband was at the store and people before him were being super rude and taking it out on the cashier and manager. He paid for our stuff and got cash out, gave it to them and said that he hopes their night gets better and that he's sorry that they were treated like that.

Just saw in a local Facebook selling group someone offer diapers, wipes, paper towels, etc. free to those that need them. I didn't recognize her name, but she must be a couponer.

I help a lady that had a big buggy of grocery. She was trying to push the cart and hold the baby. So I took it upon myself to get the cart and unload for. Carrying a sleeping baby and pushing a cart isn’t a good thing. That’s my good deed for this day

Our town has a neighborhood website. Someone posted that she had lots of toilet paper and offered to give some to people who were in need. I was really impressed with the selfless attitude.

Senn a man give a crying older lady money to buy toilet tissue, she only had a few dollars to buy a small pack with were all gone! He asked could he help her and her response was that she only wished she had money to buy toilet tissue, so he gave her a big pack and $15.99!!

Today our church started a food drive. I went thru my stockpile and donated both food and cleaning supplies. Also my wife is our church secretary and she said she got a call from a retired pastor that that is a member of our church. He said they had 80 dollars to spend on groceries. He was unloading his groceries and the man in front of him paid for them. Awesome !!!!!!!!!!!

Please check with your neighbors on each side of you and see how they are doing or if they need anything. Do this via phone or a note taped to the door. If we all do this we will all be taken care of

A young mother was in line in front of me at the store and for some reason her card wasn’t working and she had food for her baby and I told her that I would purchase it for her. She was very grateful and got very emotional. Being friendly is free!

Jamie brooks

March 17, 202008:12 pm

Right now kindness can go a long way. A smile or a roll of toilet paper, anything! I've tried to let elderly go ahead of me in the stores right now. It's important they can get in and out as quickly as possible.

I picked up my groceries and started a conversation with the young lady who brought them out. We were talking about the virus and the shortages of TP and wipes. She has a small child and was out of wipes and diapers. We had wipes in the car so we gave them to her. She was so happy.

I teach high school math. It is a subject that lots of kids struggle with and with e-learning it is even harder for those who do because their teacher isn’t always there to Gide them and show them what to do in a problem. I have made my home office into tutor central for our complex. Not only am I doing all my regular work but I posted all over the neighborhood where to come for help. Today I had kids from middle through high school dropping in to ask for help, no charge just helping them through.

Recently an elderly lady was looking for toilet paper at another store while I was shopping. I was looking also. The store had 4 packs left. I put 2 in ny cart then climbed on the shelf (im really short lol) and grabbed the other 2 for her instead of purchasing all of them.

I was recently laid off from my job and I was going through my teenage sons outgrown clothes to sell.

I'm a teacher and, like so many others, found out we're not going back to school any time soon from Spring Break. Today we were allowed into the building to get essential items. When I went in, I realized that people had left food in the department refrigerator. Even though I don't use it, I cleaned it out, tossed out the perishable food, and washed the reusable containers so my colleagues wouldn't eventually return to anything stinky and/or moldy.

I’m in the Buy Nothing group on Facebook for my neighbors around me. One of the requests on this group recently was asking for help with food and snacks for her three children. I ended up giving her 4 bags of goodies, including personal hygiene items like hair care products, toothpastes and toothbrushes, hand soaps, plus more. It felt good to be able to help out the people around me who needed a lending hand.

Alyssa Hibbard

March 17, 202007:07 pm

I've done a few things to help out during this tough time in our community but I do not want recognition. The real hero's in my community are the schools. Our school has been cancelled until April and our schools came together, not only before the end of the day on the last day by providing bags and bags of food for children, but they are also having a drive thru service at many different areas in our town for children to pick up lunch and a breakfast for the next day. It really makes me tear up and I'm so blessed to be a part of such a loving community.

Tanya

March 17, 202007:05 pm

I have been giving food to people in need through Facebook Albuquerque free group. I also have been helping people when I see they need it when I'm out. Opening doors for elderly, helping people reach things and offering people to go before me. Started a Facebook post on where to find food etc in Albuquerque.

On Sunday, I assisted a disabled lady get laundry detergent from the shelf that she wasn't able to reach herself. In addition, I allowed her to use my Kroger card and she didn't have one and the cashier wouldn't give her a store card. She was very thankful and kept thanking me as I left the checkout area.

Today I posted that I was going to venture out because I needed bread and milk and if anybody needed anything. My friend asked if I could buy her some bread and my neighbor asked if I could find hamburger meat I ventured out to three stores which I could not find any hamburger meat I did find the bread I drove it to my friends house free of charge and when my neighbor came home I gave him meat out of my own freezer because that's the right thing to do.

Melissa G

March 17, 202006:42 pm

My friend went to the store to get toilet paper. There was none on the shelf, but she saw someone with two packs in her cart. The lady was nice enough to give my friend a pack, so in-turn, my friend paid for that lady's toilet paper too.

In my home state of West Virginia, schools have been shut down to prevent the spread of the virus. Realizing so many children rely on the school system for basic nutrition, staff in schools across the state are working everyday to prepare these meals for the students like any other day and bus drivers are driving there usual routes, stopping at their normal stops and dropping off meals to these children. I think this is a brilliant idea and shows the compassion for your neighbor West Virginians have!

I'm sorry some have been grumpy to you guys. I appreciate this site so much! I've seen a lot of kindness over the last few days and have tried to be part of it. My favorite act today was a friend posted an offer to go get groceries for anyone who lives in her area and doesn't want to get out. I love that.

I was able to schedule a Kroger Pickup for Sunday at 8-9 am for an order that I placed Friday night. I knew that the store staff had likely been overworked. I was so happy that both the other customer picking up and I got out of our vehicles and help our orders. I love Kroger and was so happy that everyone was kind and helpful.

Went grocery shopping Sunday night .. of course everyone in a frenzy . Told the cashier to keep scanning the elderly woman’s order behind me. The lady said man that’s mine not here . I turned and simply said .. in times like these everyone needs a little kindness.. she hugged me so tight .. for something so little .

Went to Kroger on weekend picking up items during the chaos. I got in line 15 deep and watching as everyone was being polite despite the wait. People having nice conversations with the person in front or behind them. It was best thing I had seen o compared with how my niece went earlier in day and she was ridiculed for buying diapers by some rude women. Thanks though for sharing.

March 17, 202005:46 pm

Our neighbor's mother is in a nursing home, and it was recently locked down to keep the residents well. She is lonely now that her husband and children can't visit daily, so my neighbor started a pen-pal sort of thing to keep her mother's spirits up. So, my children and I are writing to her even though we haven't met her.

March 17, 202005:44 pm

We had to have Comcast out for a TV box that wasn't working. My son and I had been doing a cooking day and had lots of chili so I invited our tech to stay for lunch and he accepted! My daughter is recovering from having her wisdom teeth out and he told us the story about how he just had his out last month. It was nice getting to know someone new and it's a treat to have our TV working again ;)

Victoria

I called my Mother and Mother in law to see what they needed. My Mother lives in a senior housing and it's not easy for her to get out. I usually always have a little extra supplies from using coupons,so what I couldn't find in stores I took my extra to them. We all need to help one another at this time!

My adult life has been blessed beyond what I could ever have imagined. So when a family at school started having some serious health issues right around Christmas my daughter and I gathered some information and provided gifts for the three kids and the parents. The parents are both public school employees...not the highly paid ones, so it was our pleasure to help out.

Yessica Guerrero-Vazquez

March 17, 202005:29 pm

I bought wipes and diapers for my brother shower before all this started happening. I decided my brother baby can wait and won't need them right. Offer items to others that couldn't find these iteams at the store now.

Today I witnessed a local food vendor give food away to those who can’t pay or to give what they can. People were paying more so that he himself wouldn’t suffer either. Sure warmed my heart. Shout out to Cattleman’s Q.

Joey Bragg

March 17, 202005:11 pm

I was behind a little old lady who was having the cashier put things back and take them off the count until she was under the cash she had in her hands. She was so embarrassed and kept apologizing over and over. I myself am on a low fixed income so I very much understood. Then all of a sudden I was "prompted" (we know what that means" to tell the cashier to add her items back on the ticket! I paid for the items as I felt she needed everything she had brought to the counter. Of course she kept saying "You don't have to do this". I said, "I know, that is what make it wonderful to get to do it". Then she tried to give me what little she had in her wallet, I said NO... Then she tried to give it to the cashier, she said NO.... I am beyond grateful to be able to help someone in need. I know what it feels like.

March 17, 202005:09 pm

There are so many acts of kindness that I am seeing in my community! Our schools are making sure the kids are getting lunch and breakfast. Myself, I have personally offered to help my neighbor who has stage 4 COPV get his groceries so that he does not have to compromise himself to any germs. I know other people are helping the elderly and other people who are immuno-compromised. A local Cincinnati restaurant, The Yard House has offered free dinner to our local first responders. The list just goes on and on. I think it is so important during this time to focus on the positive because it always outweighs the negative! Also if you know any nurses, doctors, first responders etc who are in the core of all of this, Saffron Road on their facebook page is offering to send them care packages.

March 17, 202005:08 pm

My friend's family owns couple restaurants. Since restaurants are shut down in our state, their's are not open. My friend let me know that they are considering to pay employees per their work schedule regardless the shut down, since most of them live on paycheck by paycheck. I think that's a right thing to do and I admire their kindness.

Cathy Gibson

March 17, 202005:07 pm

I saw an elderly couple from our church behind me in a drive thru line (DQ). I told the cashier I wanted to take care of their bill. That particular couple are some of the most giving people I know and I wanted to give something even though it was just a small gesture.

Sara

March 17, 202004:47 pm

I have been able to provide my parents with a stockpile shelf through years of couponing. I called them last week and they had no idea stores were being wiped clean- my dad asked if he needed to go out and get any supplies ( I still do majority of there shopping) I told him no there is plenty of toilet paper, paper towels, etc. in the stockpile. I ran to Sam's Club last night and picked them up a few other things and am driving an hour up to see them tonight to give them this stuff and be able to have dinner together.

March 17, 202004:40 pm

Thanks to the heads up on the site, I was able to go get some of the last apple sauce packets at my Kroger for my kids since they'd be home from school shutting down. I snagged 5 (even if they were different flavors) and was doing a little boogie in the van when I got to the light. There was a man there with a wagon and his dog in the wagon. On the wagon was a sign saying "It sucks to beg, but it sucks worse to starve," and I jumped out of the van, opened the trunk to grab two 6 packs, and gave those to him. Sure, I might have been a little late in getting back in my car to go at the green light, but there were only two cars behind me and I saw the person behind me give something to him. I like to think that my act of kindness motivated them to do the same. Sometimes we just need a little push to remember we're all in this together and we need to help each other out.

I love all of the positivity being shared on social media. In the midst of the situation, it is so inspiring to see so many examples of outreach without any thought of the cost. When I'm done with finals I will be looking for ways I can reach out and be of sercice and feel motivated to do so after seeing people offer free babysitting, free shopping, and running errands for free in my community.

I have a couple elderly neighbors that I have bought groceries and toilet paper for so they don’t have to go out in this mess. I plan on doing this until all this is calmed down. Also I was at store and I let a few elderly ladies go in front of me in line.

Patty

March 17, 202004:13 pm

I was in line ready to check out with a grocery cart full and i noticed an elderly man behind me in line with just a few items. I told him to go a head and get infront of me since he only had a few things. He was so thankful and appreciative. I was just doing something kind for this nice older man. I was in no hurry and i did not want him to have to wait for me to check out since i had a cart full of groceries and it would've taken a while.

Deb Redd

March 17, 202004:02 pm

While I was at Kroger I saw an elderly man looking for some canned goods. Most of the items that weren't picked thru were on the top shelves,which he couldn't reach from his chair. I walked around with him and loaded his cart for him so he could get what he needed.

Cynthia Rosson

March 17, 202004:01 pm

I went to my local bread store for my weekly purchase. The cashier asked me "How do you like free? I said "I love free!" Then the cashier said "no charge". I asked why and was told because I am one of her favorite customers. It ALWAYS pays to be nice. Nothing good comes from being rude.

I was overly nice to the very rude deli grocery worker. I never report anyone and actually thought about reporting her for her attitude, dirty looks, and comments towards people. I know she was stressed with the madness going on in grocery stores, so before I walked away I told her thank you and I hope her day got better. I doubt it helped but I hope it made her feel a little appreciated.

I can't say I'm doing more than normal because taking care of others is just what I do! I return my cart to the inside of store always, the other day I found an item that I was looking for as well as another lady and tracked her down in store after finding it on an end cap, and I've been making sure my 95 yo grandpa is well stocked up on food and his house is sanitized. No one has been crazy where I live yet...so far everyone has been nice and kind in the crowded store which is awesome!!

Vivian

March 17, 202003:48 pm

Say a man at Walgreens looking at the women’s feminine isle and as we walked closer he said if you’re looking for wipes they are all out. I’m trying to see if I can use these for my newborn son. He had 3 packs of Summers Eve Feminine wipes in his hand at $5.99 each!! I felt so bad, we had just got out of Safeway and found a pack of wipes, so I went to my trunk and grabbed it for him. His son needs it more than my 8 year old.

I was at Dillons picking up my clicklist and talking with another lady who was just getting her clicklist. She commented that Dillons did not have any more milk and wondered if anywhere else in town still did. I had just come from Aldi and knew that they had some milk still. It doesn’t take much to help someone in need!!!

I live in an apartment complex and my next door neighbors are elderly, I havent seen them leave for days and know they dont have family that lives in town. When I went grocery shopping the other day I made sure to get them some necessities to help get thru this hard time.

We found out yesterday that our office is closing down because of the coronavirus. We have a few employees that we are a little worried about. Before our big meeting yesterday, my lead manager called and asked if we had anything extra to bring to the office to pass out to other workers. When I came in there was a huge table set up with household supplies, kids toys, magazines, DVDs, etc so everybody could make a goodie bag. One employee set up a spot to help others file for unemployment. Our office is amazing and we truly love each other.

I love reading all the comments! It’s nice reading about the RAK everyone is doing in today’s world while being self-isolated. I heard my elderly neighbor was feeling ill, so I made her a get well basket. I included several day’s worth of food including a fresh pot of homemade chicken noodle soup as well as meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I also baked her some banana bread, because it’s her favorite. I was worried she might need some medicine and stuff so I put tissues, toilet paper, Motrin, Sudafed and chapstick in the basket. She is the sweetest little lady and does for all the other neighbors so this was my chance to give back to her. Oh, I also got her puppy dog some snacks too. I watched her open the door from my porch and when she saw that big basket full of goodies she put her hand over her mouth then to her heart. My daughter and I cried it was so perfect. Please check on the elderly and neighbors during this time!

I'm a Walmart employee and during this time, I've made sure the elderly are able to check out instead of making then stand in line for long periods of time. I've also seen quite a few people paying for another's grocery bill if they were short a few dollars.

I work for a CPA and have got to witness her do certain tax returns for free. When they come in to pickup and pay, we tell them they won the drawing for the month. These are individuals who usually have gone through a hard time that personally. It is great to watch their expressions.

We helped a struggling friend pay her rent. She has had major complications due to breast cancer, surgery, chemo, etc. I happily use this blog to find deals, not only for us, but to give to the food bank and homeless shelters. You are a blessing to all of us to help get bargains and free stuff.

We recently went out of town. While at a store I saw 2 young ladies collecting money for their rehab center. I donated the cash I had on hand and prayed with them. I truly pray the center and their higher power will help them with their addiction.

I held a lady's place in line at Costco while she went to grab an additional item because the line was so long with the craziness of the virus and shopping.

March 17, 202003:08 pm

Last week when some people went crazy hitting the stores like the world was coming to an end. My nice who has 3month old baby, call me to ask me if I had baby wipes she had gone to the store and couldn't find baby wipes, and since she knew that I am always be couponing. So I took all the baby wipes I had and drove from from the east side of town all the way close to sugar land where she lives. The same day my daughter who lives on Austin texas had gone grocery shopping and couldn't find water or toilet paper and at same time my sister who lives here in Houston didn't have water either. So I went to Sam's found the water, went to several stores until I found the toilet paper, delivered the water for my single with kids mom sister. And then I had the opportunity to visit my daughter that weekend for my grandsons birthday and took the water and toilet paper. Some of my neighbors know that I coupon all the time they have been coming to get some detergent and shampoo they dont want to go to the store with this craziness. I feel happy that I can help my family and my neighbors. Thank you Kroger for all the mega sales!! Love kroger!!

A church member posted asking for materials to make items she could sell to raise money for kids camp. My husband is unemployed. I have a lot of brand new lumber in the garage we were going to post to make some money for gas, groceries, etc. I knew giving it to her would bless many and go further than what I could get on FB marketplace. I hope she makes lots of signs or whatever to bless kids to go do whatever they do to makeup for summer camp should it be cancelled. I hope not!!

Hi, my name Terri Assini, The one thing that had me worried was that our health care workers would have to work long hours and not be able to spend alot of time with their loved ones. So I went out to our best store ever and picked up 4 boxes of the $.50 cake mix and my children and I made cupcakes to take to some of the health care workers to try and brighten up their day, while they continue to take care of our lived one's. And we have decided that this is something that we want to keep doing. It's such a great experience when your children are involved, I love it! Thank-You all for your kindness this is the best thing to spread

March 17, 202002:40 pm

We recently hired a young girl who is homeless. In talking with her, I realized she is in need of several things. Even tho she is staying with a friend, money is tight. I have been in her situation before and it's difficult not having a enough money for food or personal care items. I am a single mom, I coupon and have complied a stockpile of items and clothing. I am sharing my hard work and good place in life with her. I have given her clothing, food, personal care items, etc. Being homeless and feeling alone is the worst feeling in the world, especially when you finally get a job. I want to help her succeed and overcome her burdens. She is not alone. As women, we must bond together to support each other. This gift card will allow me to continue to help her and others not so fortunate.

My daughter was so sad that our store was sold out of her favorite treat. Alot was sold out. I was there just trying to get some basics because my husband had just gotten paid. Some basics we not there (toilet paper, any meat, milk for cereal that we did get!) And I felt so defeated leaving the store and not even being able to get whatvmy family needs for a week or 2 and my daughter's poptarts. She was crying when I told her they were out. I texted my mom to talk and after we got off the phone she went and texted all the people she knew locally to see if she could find poptarts for my kid. (I had no clue) the next day there were 2 boxes of Smore Poptarts on my doorstep with a note that said your nana loves you very much and we want you to know we love and support our neighbors. I hope you enjoy these and stay safe sweet girl. This sweet act of kindness even made me cry. Even if I'm still out of essentials my heart is so warmed by the fact that neighbors pulled together just to make a little girl smile.

We were in Family Dollar and the man in front of us was short a dollar and some change. We paid his whole bill, less than $10.00. He was very grateful. I told him to save his money, I got you today.

A neighbor, who is a nurse, commented on a facebook group that she needed toilet paper. My husband was at Costco so we bought her a package.

Michelle

March 17, 202002:31 pm

We have been trying to run and get items we can from the grocery store that elderly attendants at our church need so they don’t have to get out. I would feel terrible if any of them contacted the virus being out and about when we could have helped. I also saw some folks at Aldi the other day walk out to their vehicle and grab a few rolls of toilet paper for a gentleman that was out looking for some and was unable to find any. It is sure good to see their are still thoughtful, selfless people out there. :)

March 17, 202002:29 pm

So last night we went to our Favorite restaurant since there is no longer dining in options for 15 days, and left extra large tip for the servers since they will be out of work for 15 days...have to help out service industry workers!!! #payitforward

Julie

March 17, 202002:25 pm

I was at Aldi yesterday. Unfortunately, I did not have a quarter to unlock a shopping cart. Thankfully, someone had left a quarter in their cart and I was able to use it. It was such a blessing! I left the quarter for the next person.

Wow! Funny I came across this today because, yesterday at King Soopers I was waiting in line and the lady in front of me her card would not go through and I could see the frustration in her face and embarrassment so I told the checker I would pay for her things and she started crying. I feel if I am able I will help!

Tami

March 17, 202002:19 pm

Before this corona virus hit I keep my house stocked with food. All I need is hamburger meat which I can’t find. I have told family and neighbors if they need anything to come get it and they have. I always donate food in my area once a month so I will take extras this week

Amanda Brooks

I was at the dentist yesterday and mentioned I couldn’t find a sitter for my kids...today my hygienist called and said that her daughter could babysit for me. Amazing. The event was cancelled but it was totally above and beyond.

Gloria

March 17, 202002:14 pm

I don’t know if counts as an act of kindness or just human decency. I have kept an eye out for items my friends and family are in need of and have either bought it for them or told them to come purchase them. Everyone I have talked to is trying to only make necessity purchases and not panicing. We are all trying to help each other out.

The act of kindness I’ve witnessed over the weekend is how some stores are offering “elderly hours” to help protect older shoppers. When I saw it on the news, I went to my neighbor and told him that so he can stock up too. He is in 70s so I feel bad for him.

Lisa

March 17, 202002:05 pm

Our local Kroger was working above and beyond and working extremely diligent in making sure the store was very clean and the shelves were stocked. Love my Kroger!

March 17, 202002:04 pm

I’ve just been trying to take care of those around me. I have a few elderly neighbors that I went grocery shopping for and I donated some extra grocery to our local food pantry! This is an awesome giveaway! Thank you

Anne Marie

March 17, 202002:02 pm

I reached out to my elderly neighbor and got her groceries for her and then put them away for her - she so appreciated this and I will continue to do this weekly so she does not have to worry about groceries.

I have been so impressed with the employees at the City Market store in our tiny town. I know they must feel so overwhelmed at the rush of people and the empty shelves, yet every worker I see seems so helpful, happy, and kind. Also, the people shopping at the store...I can tell they are worried, but I haven’t seen any rudeness or fighting over groceries. Patience and kindness are still king! Also, thanks for still posting all the deals—we appreciate YOU!!! ❤️

Was at Sam’s Club and got 2 boxes of individually packed chips for my kiddos to have while they’re stuck at home. When I was there to grab them there was some left. Went elsewhere to finish grocery shopping and ended back in the chip aisle. Saw a lady there looking for chips but there were none left so I offered one of my boxes. Told her she can take any box she liked and she was very thankful for that.

Jeanette Cranston

March 17, 202001:55 pm

I have been couponing for paper products for the last 6 months(still new too couponing) and I donated most of my tp to older people and too people with kids who posted on facebook that they couldn't find any...I also sent them home with toothpaste and showering supplies for the people in their home . In times like these we all need to come together . I think what you are doing with the gift card is a fantastic idea!

Susan K Campbell

March 17, 202001:53 pm

We have lots of elderly neighbors living in our area, so my kids and I posted in our Neighbors app offering to do grocery runs, etc to any that are afraid of the large crowds at the grocery store, it's not much but we hope that every little bit helps. Stay safe all

Sang at a funeral last week with a group of others from church. Normally, the church would be packed for a founding member of our church, but maybe a third of the church pews were full. Family was very appreciative. I will think about that time singing with my friends as we are all now going to church online.

Kay

My mom(alzheimers) is in a nursing home and dad eats breakfast with her every morning. He tried to take it sunday and of course denied entry. One of the workers took it and said he'd make sure she got her biscuits and gravy. Havent seen her in 10 days and I'm sure she doesnt understand why...

Angela

March 17, 202001:48 pm

We have seen people in our neighborhood who work in retail offer to get items for some of the people (without a delivery charge) who were not able to because of not being able to leave the house or the items not being in stock.

Christina

March 17, 202001:48 pm

I recently saw a post about a fellow couponer that dig into her stockpile and made toiletry/hygiene bags to hand out to the homeless during this time. I think it’s amazing that while the rest of the world is trying to stockpile, someone is giving away theirs.

Amber

March 17, 202001:47 pm

Over the weekend we took 2 families a meal. A local restaurant put $500 in giftcards to his business at the counter so anyone that needs a meal can have one.

I live in NKY and my mom lives in Eastern KY, 3 hours away from me. Supplies are very limited, as they only have a Walmart, Food City and a few Dollar Generals, which are completely wiped out! I love couponing and have for a couple of years, so I loaded up my car, only leaving room for myself and took my mom and aunts and uncles, that are elderly and diabetic, the necessities they need to get through a couple weeks. I can always replenish later and I have access to more stores in NKY for the necessities my husband and I will need.

Jennifer Lime

March 17, 202001:43 pm

I have read several Facebook posts from teachers and aids from our small school system (Whitko) that are willing to help the kids out at anytime during distance learning. Not only that, they are volunteering to take meals to the kids as well as babysit if necessary. Small town life is amazing!

Evelyn

I have been so impressed with our community and all the acts of kindness I am seeing, I can’t brag enough on my community! The quickest response and one that is affecting the most people is the school who upon closing has set up a delivery system to make sure kids still have meals in our district. We are also blessed with many small business and restaurants stepping up to help others in need even though they are taking a huge hit to their businesses with all the shut downs.

Sandy Witucky

March 17, 202001:40 pm

I was at the local bakery and the elderly couple in front of me didn't realize they only took cash or check. They were planning on using their debit card. So when the cashier told them cash or check only they were scrambing to see how much cash they had on them, and starting to decide which items they were going to put back. I stepped in and told them to keep all their items and I would gladly pay the bill for them. They were shocked and so very greatful. And I was more than happy to do this for them. The world today needs more of this compassion.

Elaine

March 17, 202001:39 pm

I help the people at Kroger put shopping carts back in the store or the shopping cart stations. I see that some shoppers are just leaving them all over parking lot. That is just being lazy and inconsiderate of others.

March 17, 202001:34 pm

After my husband had to sit and wait for FOUR hours for my pickup order to be ready on Saturday (my pickup time was 9-10am and he got our stuff at 1:15pm) we discovered when he got home that they failed to give us any of our cold stuff. I had no milk, eggs, cheese, etc. I was charged for it all but we didn't get it. I called the store and spoke to the nicest manager who used his personal cell phone to call me from the coolers where he found all of my items. When I told him I was not asking my husband to make that 30 minute trip again that day to pick up the items the manager offered to either bring them to us or bring us a cash refund. We were able to work out a compromise so that neither of us had to travel but I thought it was super nice of him to offer! Our store has had a streak of bad luck with managers so it was nice to see that we finally have one that cares about the customers!

Risa West

March 17, 202001:34 pm

First of all, thanks for all that you do for us! Your videos and tips for saving money at Kroger’s are very much appreciated! I was in the dollar store looking for hand sanitizer this past weekend and a little girl wanted some Easter Eggs. She handed the bag to her dad and he replied “not today sweetheart “. I’m such a “wuss”! The look in her eyes when he said no did something to me. The dad told her to return the eggs and after the little girl left, I asked the parents if it was ok for me to pay for the candy. After some hesitation, both parents agreed and I gave them the money for the child’s candy. Needless to say, I hope that I brought a smile and happiness to someone during these uncomfortable days.

Robin Rogers

March 17, 202001:30 pm

I made a friend of mine a basket of cleaning supplies and necessity items that I know can’t get out right now to get it, plus some extra toilet paper I had. Remember the elderly at this time because they can’t get out to get things like a younger person and it’s harder on them if they get sick for being out!!

March 17, 202001:30 pm

We received chicken and noodles from a coworker after I was asked to go home because I had coughed in a meeting. I have been to a doctor and diagnosed with upper respiratory infection. But still my coworkers helped me out!

Teresa

March 17, 202001:30 pm

There was one package of toilet paper left at the grocery store and I put it in my cart. An elderly lady came down the aisle and made a comment about being too late to get toilet paper, so I gave her my package. We happened to check out at the same time so I helped get her groceries out to her car for her.

Vanessa Raymond

March 17, 202001:29 pm

I went around my block to all the elders houses and offered to go shopping for them. So they didnt have to go out, yesterday. 2 of the accepted the offer. All were thankful and said they would let me know if they needed something later in the week.

Jessica

March 17, 202001:26 pm

When I found out the schools were closing I contacted my sons teacher to see if there were any kids who may need food for the next two weeks. There were two so I went to Kroger and got them a bunch of groceries so they wouldn’t have to worry about food for at least the next week.

My office building is right next to an elderly retirement center. We usually go over once a month and do a fun joint event with the residents. However, with all of the danger in their midst right now, we ofcourse couldn’t go over this month. However, a few of us decided that this is when our neighbors need us most, and even though we couldn’t go be with them, we weren’t going to let them down. So we worked with the community coordinator to buy them a bunch of their favorite snacks and movies and dropped them off. It wasn’t much, but hopefully it helps them in this stressful time remember that we see them, we care about them, and we have their backs.

Thank you for all that you do! I'm cookie mom for our Girl Scout troop and this past weekend, they officially shut down cookie season. The Central Indiana council has personally taken on the cost of all the remaining cookies so that our troops can donate them. We're splitting the varieties up as equally as we can so that we can leave a box at multiple nursing homes, urgent cares, ERs and homeless shelters.

I went to Walmart after my sons Dr’s appointment. I went to get my baby some snacks and noticed some amazing deals on organic food. I saw a lady looking for baby food and showed her all the little deals on the baby food. There was Earths Best, Gerber, Happy Kid pouches for $0.25 ea. Instead of the normal $1.39-1.59. It was nice helping someone find Good healthy food for her baby for cheap with all the craziness and food shortage going on.

Miracle

March 17, 202001:22 pm

I'm have a small income, but thanks to couponing and shopping the sales, I'm able to provide for my family, extended family and elderly neighbors. Most recently, I've been able to take bleach, toilet tissue, food and cleaning supplies to several households that would otherwise have to go without because of cleared shelves and no money for extras during the coronavirus shutdowns. Thank you for sharing deals with others!

I got a $25 IHOP gift card for Christmas. My roommate and I went out for breakfast to spend the gift card. Our server ended up voiding my meal off the bill because it was all messed up, so our total only came to $11. We tipped the rest of the $25 gift card :)

Stephanie Wells

March 17, 202001:21 pm

Thanks for this fun giveaway! I have seen many acts of kindness over the last few weeks, especially towards children and the elderly. Recently, I saw some elderly folks being helped with grocery shopping by a complete stranger. So great to others loving on the less fortunate!

I have a friend that works in Michigan. She has a handicap niece and her mother isnt able to get out. They live in the town I live in. Her mother isn't able to get out and her niece is handicap. She had order tissue paper for them. She ordered from kroger Walmart and target to have it delivered to them. Orders was canceled cause stores were all out of stock. I went to a few stores here in town and found some. I bought it for her and took it to her mother

This past Sunday I cleared out my stockpile of all paper, cleaning and disinfecting products (outside of what my family would need) and took everything to my mother's church to distribute items to the elderly members so that they could be prepared.

In January I signed up for a “pay it forward” group. So every month I have 4 people that I send random, cards, notes or gift cards too - this month I amped it up, I randomly sent snack care packages to 5 families I know with kids that will now be out of school. It’s so easy to be kind.

I think it’s the little things that are so important right now. Whether letting the older lady in front of me in line this morning or simply smiling at someone. People need kindness more than anything right now.

A recent act of kindness I received during this time of panic is an older lady offering my boyfriend & I one of the 2 rotisserie chickens in her cart. Of course we said no, but it meant a lot to see someone offering & being self-less during this time!

I offered some items I had to others that they couldn’t find at the store.

We were eating at an Outback Steakhouse, when we saw that our waiter had laid down his order book, and had all of his tip money was stolen. My daughter had just received some Birthday money, she asked her Dad to run her to a ATM. She wanted to leave him a $100.00 tip because of what happened. Of course her Dad and I left the money. But it’s pretty awesome to think that we have raised such an awesome daughter.

I was at my local kroger waiting in a long line of self checkout. It was close to midnight and that's all that was open. The lady in front of me was checking out and didnt have enough money to finish her transaction. She called the attendant over to void her sale and I saw that she just owed $3.01. So I paid it. She was very thankful. I did it for multiple reasons. She needed her items but it also frees the attendant up from having to void a transaction! I love Kroger and coupons! Thanks for doing what you do!

3 days ago I had 2 cases of water in my buggy at Walmart and they had more when I got mine but as I shopped they depleted and an elderly couple were coming through and got upset because they weren’t any left. One was in a motor cart too so I told them they could have one of mine. In the long run it’s easier for me to get some than them. They were skeptical until I put it in their buggy. They kept thanking me.

Went to my kroger store to get a few things and noticed a women in a automatic cart. She was asking people to grab things off the top of the shelf because she was unable. .. most people ignored her. I finished my grocery shopping trip with her to make sure she got everything she needed.

A man donated, brought and set up a refurbished computer to me after all the rules were being set to "social distance". I live in a Senior/Disabled community and volunteer as I can. With this new gift (which he only asked that I pay it forward) I am doing the residents Census 2020's. I am also able to order online groceries. I am able to pick them up if necessary. No one should have to do this alone.

My neighbor, a young single mother, was leaving to take her 2 boys to grandparents last Friday just as I was headed to Kroger. We chatted for a few minutes about current situations. She stated she had been to Kroger and everything was gone. I was only going for the weekend specials so I said I would be ok. She stated she'd only been able to get a can of Lysol and she would share. I told her not to worry that I have a stockpile of tissue, paper towels, cleaning products and anything else she might need. I told her just send one of the boys over when she needs something. Together we can get thru this. Sharing is caring. Take care of each other.

On my way to work this morning, I witnessed a trash man, go up to the home of someone and bring down their trash container to be emptied. I could only assume that he is the regular route driver and knows that the home owner was older and probably unable to come out and bring it to the curb themselves. Made my heart smile.....

I let people with less groceries go in front of me because I generally have at least a half a cart full. I have offered to share my pantry with those that need whatever I have. A church here did a food drive specifically for kid friendly foods and did up 2 weeks worth of lunches & snacks. Ended up with 4000 boxes with less than a week to announce & gather foods, even with the grocery shortages here.

Since I am always getting great deals at Fry’s, I always have tons of everything. I usually give out bags of groceries from my pantry to visitors in my home. I recently gave some groceries to my daughter’s teacher and she was so surprised it was beautiful to be able to share with her!

Kathy

My random act of kindness would be sunday while the week prior everyone cleared store shelves, I went to get a few things. I saw a $20 on the ground and after loading groceries took it inside to a CSM and she just looked at me like I was crazy. I told her it could have been an elderly or single parent that lost it, and I hoped they'd return it to whomever might have lost it.

I saw a Facebook post floating around recommending families and homeowners to put out a Picture of a shamrock outside their home. Something that can be visible for moms who are taking their kids on walks to get out of the house and makes a fun scavenger hunt game. I reposted this in my next door neighbor app so that I could spread the awareness. Just trying to do my part to spread happiness to those around me.

Elise Adams

March 17, 202012:54 pm

I was at my 6th store looking for toilet paper and finally found one package so I tossed it in my cart and moved along until I noticed an elderly woman staring at the bare shelves. She was wearing a mask. I walked back around and put my bag of TO in her cart. She said she couldn’t take it from my babies ( I had all 4 of my kids with me) but I told her it was fine just take it. A 6 pack of toilet paper isn’t going to make or break me at this point. We use reusable diapers, cloth wipes and cloth towels the only non reusable paper items I buy are kleenex and TP but I knew at some point in the next week or so I would be able to find it in stock somewhere and until then I had 5 rolls left. She looked like she was going to cry! Sure enough my mom called me as I was leaving and told me she found 4 12 packs at another store and got me 2 of them so it worked out. It always pays to be nice even if it doesn’t seem so in the moment. This is why society needs to abide by the age old take 1 and pass the rest motto :)

This year I donated a meal box at Publix check out. I wanted to pay for my cousin wedding cake but the wedding got cancelled because of the virus spreading. And I paid for the person order behind me at Starbucks. And this year me and my daughter decided to donate to no kid hungry so that’s on my to do list. These act of kindness are important to me because I’ve had quite a few people pay for my groceries, gas, and food just out the kindness of their heart.

I recently took my son to get a haircut. When the barber was done I had my son give him the money and we walked out. As soon as we were out the door, the barber came out and handed my money back. He said the owner told him someone already paid for my sons haircut. I was so surprised and grateful!

Amanda Johnson

March 17, 202012:49 pm

Being able to get in the car and run to Kroger to stock up is something that many of us take for granted. My mom is wheelchair/homebound and she lives 2 hours away. My oldest son also lives 2 hours away. With all that's going on, I've been so worried about them both. Over the weekend, I bought them both groceries and made the trip to deliver to both places. I'm going to try to make the trip again in a couple of weeks. I ask that everyone think of your elderly neighbors that can't get out at all. They need you. Also keep in mind those 21 year old sons out there that say "oh mom, I'm fine, I have 1 case of water and 2 boxes of hamburger helper"

Melissa

March 17, 202012:49 pm

I recently watched someone help a homeless person get all of their belongings out of the rain as it started pouring. I also gave money to another person because I just feel like if they can spend time standing there asking for it, they need it more than I do.

In my hometown, many people have been posting to social media, offering to help anyone with food or any other necessities, anonymously. Schools here are still setting up ways for children to get meals, even though school is out. With all the bad going on right now, it's nice to see some good come out of all of this.

March 17, 202012:45 pm

Acouple weeks back on a nice sunny Saturday I got up and went to our local meat market. While I was their a little boy walked in grabbed a bag of chips and a slim jim. He got in line and I got in line behind him. He was maybe 9 years old!! When we got up to the counter the cashier asked him how he was and what he had planned for the day. It seems he comes in often. He answered with getting snacks to go home and play video games. His total was $3.99 and sadly he only had 2 $1 bills and some coins. Without hesitation I pulled acouple ones out of my purse and helped him pay for his items. I am a mom of 4 and can only hope that if one of my children get in a position like this that a stranger would help them. The little boy, the cashier, and the gentleman behind me all thanked me. Like I said I did not do this to get attention just hoping someday if my children need help someone helps them.

Longer hours, short handed etc. I was off yesterday, so I took the employees of the store homemade snickerdoodle cookies to try to brighten their day! They were very well received! I also called my elderly neighbor to see if there was anything that I could get for her while I was at the store! A young mother that works at the store that I work at was frantic because she said it is becoming harder and harder to find the formula she needs for her baby! I found some online and ordered her 2 cans to help ease her mind! We should all be jumping in and helping others!

As I was preparing to open the back of my car, a young lady approached me and asked if she could help load my groceries in the car. I told her that if she could lift the case of 32 bottles of water it would be so appreciated. Without hesitation, she loaded the case of water for me. Right after, as I was taking my cart to the cart rack, another young lady approached me and said she would return it to the store for me. I am a senior citizen and have a lot of back issues, so these acts of kindness puts faith back in our young people!!

March 17, 202012:30 pm

I helped an elderly lady in a scooter yesterday in Kroger. She was trying to get to the milk and people kept getting in front of her, grabbing what they needed and going. I asked if I could help her. She needed help picking out almond milk for her new diet, which she wasn’t familiar with. We went over the options together. Once she made a decision I got it and put it in her cart for her. A few minutes later I ran into her again in the health section and she couldn’t find the toothbrushes. I helped her with that too. Because of situations like this, I’m really glad some stores are dedicating the first hour they’re open to elderly customers.

I gave a McDonald's drive through worker a free Dutch Bros Coffee card after the person in front of me got mad that he couldn't order lunch food during breakfast time and the drive through guy wouldn't just make it for him anyway, the guy threw his drink back at the drive threw worker. I told him that he didn't deserve to be treated that way, that I heard everything he said, and that he should go get himself a free coffee later to make up for it. Gave up my whole saved up punch card to him.

I have been couponing shopping deals for a LONG time now. The virus hit and everyone went nuts. On my street we are the only younger couple the rest of our neighbors are 65 and up. My neighbors are terrified to even leave their houses. So i got into my stockpile and made each a basket and put my number in it and said call if you run out of anything and will find a way to get you by. FREE OF CHARGE.

My nephew and his wife were at the self check-out line at a grocery store in West Texas. They noticed an elderly man who only had one item, but was far back in the line. When it was their turn to check out, they instructed the attendant to go get the man and they paid for his item so he wouldn't have to stand in line. Very generous and thoughtful.

My act of kindness is. I coupon but not the extreme. I coupon to help my deddy. He lives on disability and trying to get SSI. So he struggles. And I make sure I coupon to help him with standard necessities and for his health. We are raised to be taken care of and I believe you should take care of the ones who took care of you.

Lots of people offering to help out others who are low on basic supplies. Please help out elderly neighbors and friends especially who may be reluctant to ask for help.

I recieved baby formula samples in the mail and posted them on a freebies site for our neighborhood. I had a few people come to pick up the samples because they could find formula in stores. I also shopped for my family and shared what I could find in stores. Hope everyone is staying safe!!

My sweet Sis-in-law knew I was getting close to being out of paper towels and picked some up for me at the store while she was out , so I didn’t have to go out with my toddler and newborn. ❤️

I recently was the recipient of an act of kindness! A friend who works at a public school was asked to throw out all the food that would go bad while the schools were closed. He rescued some of the food, all sealed and previously frozen, as well as fresh food like potatoes, and shared them with people in our church. I hadn't been able to find potatoes anywhere, but went home with about 20 lbs.! So appreciate his kindness!

Watched a husband lovingly help his wife into their car ever so patiently. She was not very mobile, it was very precious to witness.

I read all the new things that we should be doing to try to help the elderly, these are awesome and should be done always. I love helping them find items in the store and letting them in front of me in line. A smile also goes a long way. :)
