It’s not uncommon for movie mogul Tyler Perry to make national headlines for his good deeds—and this week, he is being praised by social media users around the world after he was revealed to be an anonymous benefactor for senior shoppers.
As thousands of elderly citizens browsed the aisles of supermarkets in New Orleans and Atlanta, Georgia, they were stunned to hear that their groceries had been paid for by the “Atlanta Angel”.
The unidentified do-gooder had picked up the tab for every shopper participating in the senior shopping hour at 44 Kroger locations and 29 Winn-Dixies.
Although the donor’s identity had initially been kept a secret, supermarket management later confirmed that it was Tyler Perry.
“Senior and higher-risk Kroger shoppers in metro Atlanta did receive a nice surprise at the register this morning when they learned Tyler Perry had paid their grocery tab in full,” said Felix Turner, the Atlanta spokesman for Kroger.
“We would like to join our customers in thanking Mr. Perry for his kindness and generosity during this unprecedented pandemic,” Turner continued. “It was truly a pleasure to see our customers fill with joy and gratitude as the news spread throughout 44 stores across metro Atlanta.”
