AMARILLO, Texas (KFDA) -A United Supermarket manager is being recognized throughout Amarillo after an act of kindness for a family.
A month ago, Shelley Patel was leaving to go grocery shopping and wanted to be able to take her eight-year-old son Shay, who has cerebral palsy, but she knew the store didn’t have special shopping carts for him.
That’s when the manager of United Supermarkets on Gem Lake Road, Tyler Perdue, stepped in.
Now, a picture has been shared thousands of times on Facebook of Tyler, Shay and a shopping cart for the disabled.
Patel posted it as a thank you after Tyler heard about Shay and went out of his way to find the Caroline Shopping Cart for people with disabilities for people to use at the store.
“I posted it on social media as a simple thank you, you know thank you for being a good human being. And if I start crying, I’m sorry. It’s just hard to find people like that,” said Patel.
