Teen Working at Store Gives Elderly Customer $20, When She Comes Up Short


Izayah Edwards is a senior at Merrillville High School and works part-time as stock person and bagger at Jewel-Osco grocery store in Crown Point, IN.

He noticed an elderly customer was $20 short on her grocery bill.

So, he pulled out his own wallet and gave her the $20.

His act of kindness was photographed by another customer in line… whose social media post about the incident went viral.

Suzanne Dee, wrote on Facebook… "I took this picture while in line at the Crown Point Jewel-Osco"… "I had been thinking crabby thoughts about humanity just before I spotted this young man, who was bagging groceries, pulling out his wallet to pay the remainder of a customer’s bill when she said she didn’t have enough. See? There are still heroes."

Edwards, who has worked at the Jewel-Osco for about a month, said he noticed the customer was taking a long time to count her money and happened to have $50 in his wallet, so he just gave her $20.
