LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — A woman bought $28,000 worth of groceries today and said that she wanted to give back to the community.

Ashley Ann Jones said that after seeing national headlines about long lines at food banks and the impact the pandemic has making on people’s jobs she wanted to do something for her community.

“I was like, I’m going to buy groceries,” said Ashley Ann Jones, “Story after story about people getting laid off, or furloughed or just lost their company.”
