On the morning of Friday, Oct. 28, my husband and I were shopping at Fargo’s 13th Avenue Aldi. (Our list was a bit larger than normal). I was about to put my card in, when a hand covered the slot on the card reader. A young woman behind us said “I’m paying for it.” I was stunned and tried to refuse as I knew it would be costly. She still insisted on paying for our groceries.

We’re sorry we don’t know the name of the young woman, but we do sincerely thank her for her generosity and will pass it on. Thank you.
