JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Alec Sprague was at a local Costco in Florida when he captured the moment a good Samaritan purchased thousands of dollars worth of generators and food to send to the Bahamas.

Sprague posted a picture of the man, whose name was not given, on Facebook and the act of generosity quickly went viral, gaining thousands of shares.

Sprague, a Jacksonville resident, said he was there to get a generator for himself when he noticed the man purchasing more than 100 generators valued at $450 each, FOX 13 reports.

“All I could do was shake his hand and thank him! There still are good people in the world!” wrote Sprague.

Sprague went on to say that the man also purchased food that would be sent to the Bahamas along with the generators.
