Teenager Helps Elderly Woman Shop At Dollar Store (Photos)

Here's one to send your millennial-shaming relatives. A 17-year-old in Georgia helped an elderly woman from her car and accompanied her while she shopped.

Fox LA reports that Connie Belle Jenkins Sweet was picking up cleaning supplies at a local Dollar Store with her nephew, Senquavious Driver, when the teenager spotted an elderly woman in need of assistance. 

"We were about to pull off and leave when she was trying to get out of her car, but she was struggling to get on the sidewalk," Sweet said. "She barely could walk."

After the woman almost fell, Driver told his aunt that she needed help, and hopped out of the car to assist her.  

"He helped her in the store and shopped with her and he walked her back out to her car," Sweet said. "She was only going in for a soda, but she barely could even get in the store."

They discovered that the woman was 81 years old, and had recently suffered a fall injuring her back. 

"I was in tears taking pictures because he didn't hesitate to help her, and that made my heart happy," Sweet said. "I'm so proud of him because I know and love the lady that raised him, my sissy."

Sweet also claims that the elderly woman was extremely appreciative and thanked Driver multiple times for his effort. 

"I have an awesome nephew." Sweet said on Facebook. "I pray to God he continues to do great things in his life."
