I needed some milk to make my mac n cheese. Got an early start wedsnesday the day before thanksgiving so I stopped at a wawa to get the milk. Before going in I’d notice maybe a middle aged man, with a backpack sitting on the sidewalk appearing to be down on his luck standing outside the store, watching as customers were walking in & out. I first walked by him going into the store nothing was said. As I came out a few people before me walked by the man, I heard him asking them for money because he was hungry. They continued walking. As I was approaching to walk by he asked me the same, wanting money stating he was hungry. I repeated to him you’re hungry, he said yes. I put my milk in the car, I turned to him and said, I’ll buy you something to eat. He followed me into the Wawa, he picked up a breakfast sandwich, he turned to me and asked if he could get another one, I said yes. Paid for em and left. As I was paying for them I noticed the man had already begun eating one seeing the crums from the sandwich around his mouth. I felt sad, but yet hoping I had made a difference in his life even it it was for one minute.

It is hard to see people who are down on their luck, having hit hard times. Your act was both generous and kind. Reading it made a difference in my day. Thank you for sharing.
