A man walked into a Costco in Florida and left with 100 generators, all of which are heading to the Bahamas.
His receipt read $49,285.70 and most of that came from paying $450 a pop for 100 generators. Peas, beans, coffee, salt, pepper and other essentials made up the rest of his mega purchase from a Costco in Jacksonville, Florida, on Wednesday.
All of it is going to those in need on the hard-hit islands of Grand Bahama and Abaco, he said.
The man wishes not to be named. He said he doesn’t want the attention and would rather that people focus on helping those affected by Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas.
It’s important that we help each other out. It’s better than just sitting there,” he said. “You see a need and you fill it.”
A photo of the anonymous donor was snapped by Alec Sprague, who was shopping at Costco at the time.
“I had to go up there to him and say, ‘Thank you for doing this,'” Sprague said. “I am so glad to see someone doing this.”
