Heartwarming Facebook post of 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.”
