Tyler Perry Pays Grocery Bills for The Elderly

By Tess Farrand, Associate Content Editor

Tyler Perry paid grocery bills for elderly shoppers at 29 groceries stores in New Orleans and 44 Krogers in the Atlanta-area.

“We would like to join our customers in thanking Mr. Perry for his kindness and generosity during this unprecedented pandemic,” said Felix Turner of Atlanta-area Krogers. “It was truly a pleasure to see our customers fill with joy and gratitude as the news spread throughout 44 stores across metro Atlanta.”

Perry showed his generosity during senior hour for shoppers, before stores open to the general public.

As for why Perry picked these two cities, NOLA is Perry’s hometown, while Atlanta houses Tyler Perry Studios.

AJC reported a few testimonies about Perry’s kindness including by female shopper, Janette Mass:
