Group surprises shoppers with free groceries

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Several Kroger shoppers received free groceries Thursday.

Memphis area credit unions teamed up to buy groceries for shoppers at Kroger on Poplar Avenue and Cleveland Street.

"It truly means a lot to a family like mine that's going through so much," Dorie Suire said. "Just small things make a big impact!"

The shoppers were picked at random in the check out line.

Suire was buying groceries for her son's birthday party when she learned she wouldn't have to pay a dime.

The credit unions shelled out $2,000 to cover groceries. They said they plan on doing the same thing again next year.
