INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – A cashier at an Indianapolis Marsh store is receiving a lot of attention after a random act of kindness that went viral.

Gary Clark was buying groceries at the Marsh on Kentucky Avenue when he noticed an elderly woman in line in front of him.

After the cashier finished ringing her up, the woman realized she didn’t have enough money to pay for all of the items.

So the cashier, whose name is Janell, took money out of her own pocket to pay for half of the woman’s groceries.

The woman kept telling Janell she didn’t have to help pay, but Janell said, “You come through my line all the time, and I want to help. I had a good week.”

Clark posted the picture on Facebook four days ago, and it already has over 18,000 shares.
