Kind Shop Owner Left this Heartwarming Message to the Person Rummaging Through Her Dumpster.





Being able to witness small, random acts of kindness is a blessing. But knowing that there are still people willing to give a hand regardless of one’s status is just too overwhelming, and that despite all the negativity happening in the world today, they are bound to make a difference in the lives of others–rich or poor, black or white, stranger or not.

Living up to this example is the owner of P.B. Jams sandwich shop in Oklahoma City, who just made everyone’s day when she posted this message outside her shop.

The message outside P.B. Jams was captured and posted by Instagram user Greg King.

The message says,

“To the person going through our trash for their next meal,

You’re a human being worth more than a meal from a dumpster. Please come in during operating hours for a classic PB&J, fresh veggies, and a cup of water at no charge. No questions asked.”

Local news KFOR was able to talk to Ashley Jiron,  the 30-year-old owner of P.B. Jams.

Last week, I had noticed some bags, when I had taken out the trash, were torn open and some of the food was taken out,” Ashley said.

That really, it hurt me that someone had to do that,” she added.

The message earned positive feedbacks from netizens after being posted in Instagram.

I think we’ve all been in that position where we needed someone’s help and we just needed someone to extend that hand, and if I can be that one person to extend that hand to another human being then I will definitely do it,” Ashley said.

Ashley’s message spread across various sites like Facebook, Twitter, and Reddit.

Her family and friends must be very proud. As a bonus, she has earned some prospective customers in the process, which I believe, she truly deserves. Great things really come to kind people. God bless you!
