Tyler Perry Buys Groceries For High-Risk Shoppers In Atlanta And New Orleans

Actor and Comedian Tyler Perry, in an incredible display of generosity during the unfolding Coronavirus pandemic, decided to secretly pick up the tab for elderly shoppers at 73 grocery stores in Atlanta and New Orleans. As The New York Post reports:

Tyler Perry is giving back during the coronavirus pandemic by secretly picking up the tab for older shoppers at 73 grocery stores across Atlanta and New Orleans, a source confirmed to Page Six.

“He wanted to do something special to provide immediate relief for some of the most vulnerable in the two cities he considers home,” People quoted a source as saying Wednesday afternoon.

Perry, 50, picked two regional chains for his largesse: 44 Kroger stores in Atlanta, Georgia — his home state — and 29 Winn-Dixie stores in New Orleans. As a number of chains are doing, the two retailers reserved special hours for elderly shoppers, Perry “targeted” the stores during that time.

It’s nice to see a celebrity finally step up to the plate for those less fortunate instead of attempting to focus on trying to blame politicians.
