Kentucky teen helps pay for elderly Kroger customer’s groceries

When this Kentucky teenager saw someone in need, he quickly stepped in to help

Teo Jordan, 18, from Covington, Kentucky, was bagging groceries at Kroger recently when an elderly man was unable to pay for all his items, according to local news station WLWT 5.

“I just [saw] that he didn’t have enough money for all the groceries that he wanted,” Jordan told the station. “So the cashier told him to put some back so I just thought in my head I would give him this $ 35 so he could have all the food that he wants.”
