Georgia teen’s act of kindness at Dollar General goes viral

GRIFFIN, Ga. — A Georgia teenager’s act of kindness at a Dollar General has gone viral.

In a heartwarming Facebook post, Connie Belle Jenkins Sweet documented her 17-year-old nephew helping an elderly woman at the store.

Sweet said she was picking up cleaning supplies when her nephew noticed the 81-year-old woman struggling to get out of her car. That’s when he hopped out of the car to assist her.

“He helped her in the store and shopped with her and he walked her back out to her car,” Sweet said, according to FOX 5. “She was only going in for a soda, but she barely could even get in the store.”

Sweet’s full Facebook post:

I take proud in knowing and being a part of his life. It brought tears to my eyes because he wanted to help her and not even knowing her situation she was so glad he took the time to help her. I HAVE AN AWESOME NEPHEW I PRAY GOD continues to DO GREAT THINGS IN HIS LIFE. Good Senqua 🤗🤗#TRAINemUP#WHENkindnessHASNOcolor#justLOVE

The woman, who was thankful for the help, had recently fallen and injured her back and face.

    To him it is something small, a no brainier, no big deal, just doing what comes naturally, to many it’s deeds like these which give me hope for the future of our nation. He represents everything that’s RIGHT about the young people in our nation. God bless this YOUNG MAN for being what our society truly needs.
