We often hear stories about random acts of kindness during the holidays, but today our anchor Stella Inger got the chance to see it with her own eyes.

While shopping at a local Fry's in Tucson, she met a man who didn't want to be identified, but he was there paying for shoppers groceries ahead of Thanksgiving.  He also didn't want the shoppers to know who he was.

Stella caught one woman's reaction on camera.

"Oh my gosh. I see people do this all the time. I would've never thought someone would do that. I'm sure there's someone who needs it more than I do," said the emotional woman.

Store employees say they've been watching people's reactions all morning and could barely hold it together.

"I just can't believe it. I'm so thankful there's people out there helping the community. There are angels out there," said Robin, the store employee.

The kind man said the holidays can be a stressful time for people. His actions were playing a small part in helping out the community.
