Yesterday, the manager of a liquor store in Minnesota was taken aback when he returned from lunch to discover that his counterhelp had been wearing her socks while wandering around the store.
Because she had just given a pair of her favorite shoes, a pair of purple throwback Jordans, to a homeless man who she spotted strapping boxes to his feet, footage from a surveillance camera proved that she had just done this.
An employee at Brooklyn Center Liquor named Ta Leia Thomas, better known in the community as “Ace,” stated that the spontaneous gesture of charity “was an easy option.”
Thomas shared his story with CBS, saying, “He claimed nobody would ever give me shoes like that.” “And I said, well, I’m not everybody.”
“I was always taught to assist other people,” she said. You have no way of knowing what issue they are dealing with or what they are going through.
The manager, Tom Agnes, commented that he wanted he had 12 Aces on his staff because of her work ethic and the pleasant connection she has with the clients even before the generous deed was performed.
Before her shift was finished, Agnes went out and got her a new pair of sneakers, and after it was over, he uploaded the footage from the surveillance camera to social media.
Thomas has been overwhelmed by the comments of love and appreciation, which quickly grew all the more intense after Agnes and a few friends in the industry came together to raise $450 for Thomas to buy another pair of purple Jordans—the color of her favorite Minnesota team, the Vikings.

As it turns out, Agnes discovered that she is the sole caregiver for her mother after becoming a little bit more attention to Ace’s life.
Agnes’s mother sleeps in Ace’s bed while Ace sleeps on the floor. In the end, rather than giving her the shoes, he just handed her the money so that she could buy a second bed.
