Kind Samaritan Pays $160 Bill For Foster Children's Groceries

Reagan Gamble was in for a pleasant surprise when a stranger paid for her groceries .

The Concho Valley Home for Girls & Children's Emergency Shelter worker was racking up meals for the kids. As she prepared to pay for her $160 worth of groceries, the H-E-B Fresh Foods cashier let her know her payment method couldn't be accepted. Unfortunately, her checks had an error on them that made them invalid. Reagan and two teens who accompanied her, were ready to go back to the organization empty-handed. However, fate had different plans.

The fellow Texan woman in line handed over her debit card and insisted on paying for the groceries. Gamble told the San Angelo Standard-Times the Good Samaritan admitted she was once in the same situation as the foster children and felt it was her duty to give back.

Kindness is proven to have a domino effect because the sheltered teens who witnessed the nice act vowed to do the same for others. Reagan said:

"Next time we go somewhere, if we see someone struggling with groceries, we can help load the car and put up the basket. The girls also talked about paying for someone's drink at Sonic."
