Boxes Of Goodness

, , | Hopeless | March 16, 2017

(I am working the register a little before the Easter season begins when a woman and her three-year-old daughter approach me.)

Me: “Hi, how are you?”

Customer: “I’m good. Do you remember those boxes of food that you guys were selling for the food bank around Thanksgiving?”

Me: “Yes.”

Customer: “Well I was just wondering if you are going to be selling them again during the Easter season?”

Me: “No, unfortunately we only sell them around Thanksgiving.”

Customer: “Oh, okay. I was just wondering because my daughter saved up all her money during that time and bought two or three boxes with it.”

Me: *to her daughter* “That’s awesome!! You’re such a good little girl!”

(It made me smile to think about a three-year-old making a huge difference to families who wouldn’t have food otherwise.)
