BETTENDORF, Iowa — A woman who recently moved to an Iowa town experienced the generosity of locals firsthand.
That’s when Marsha White, 59, stepped in to assist. She was behind Zimmerman in line and asked if she could pay for Zimmerman’s groceries. At first Zimmerman resisted, but once she realized that White was genuine and sincere in her compassionate offer, she accepted. Zimmerman hugged White and thanked her for buying the groceries.
White told The Des Moines Register that she had two friends who were dealing with health issues who received good news recently, so she wanted to pay it forward by helping out Zimmerman.
Reports of the random act of kindness have gone viral on social media, inspiring others to share their stories.
