WINSTON-SALEM, NC (WWAY) — As we enter week three of an unprecedented medical crisis, a local church group reminds us to look for the good. For the Salvation Army, that silver lining came Thursday in the form of a Costco employee.

The church circle was buying a lasagna dinner for homeless families in need. As the women were about to pay the bill, the cashier took out his own card and paid the $77.55 bill.

“Six or seven containers of lasagna. Four or five bags of salad and some bread,” said Anna Steele, who regularly volunteers for the Salvation Army.

Her church circle was grocery shopping for the Center of Hope, a homeless shelter for families in Winston-Salem. As they were checking out, the cashier stopped them.

“He said, ‘I want to pay for it.’ I said, ‘No my circle’s paying for it, it’s covered.’ He said, ‘No I want to pay for it,’ and he put his card in and he paid for it,” Steele said.
