This story warmed my heart and made me smile. COVID-19 virus has definitely made people uncomfortable and uncertain of the future.

A lady named, Rebecca Mehra helped an elderly couple get food when they were too scared to go into a busy grocery store because of the outbreak.


  This is what she wrote:

I went to the grocery store this afternoon. As I was walking in I heard a woman yell to me from her car. I walked over and found an elderly woman and her husband. She cracked her window open a bit more, and explained to me nearly in tears that they are afraid to go in the store.   Afraid to get sick as they are in their 80's and hear that the novel coronavirus is affecting older people disproportionately. And that they don't have family around to help them out. Through the crack in the window she handed me a $100 bill and a grocery list, and asked if I would be willing to buy her groceries.   I bought the groceries and placed them in her trunk, and gave her back the change. She told me she had been sitting in the car for nearly 45 min before I had arrived, waiting to ask the right person for help.

I know it’s a stressful time for everyone, but be aware of your surroundings and if someone looks like they need help don’t hesitate to ask. Sometimes it’s just the little things that make such a significant difference in someone else’s life. Not everyone has someone to help them.
