Woman Gets Accused of Being A Hoarder For Buying $1,100 Of Groceries, Explains That She’s Actually Buying For 6 Families

The authorities have already announced—there’s no shortage of food. Yet the panic buyers can’t keep themselves from stripping the shelves of grocery stores and hoarding obscene amounts of toilet paper and canned goods in their homes. This unprecedented buying has left many vulnerable people, such as the elderly, disabled, and healthcare workers without much-needed items. While many of those who understand the problem have already started to give snarky looks to the seemingly insensitive people at the stores, there’s also another side to the story.

Apparently, the woman decided to help out those who were struggling to shop for themselves.

I like this! More people need to be less judgmental about this. Unless you see these same people selling TP for $5 a roll out of the back of their car or online...keep your mouth shut.

Or, like my one neighbor, $100 for a 12-pack of cheap beer...

I know exactly how this feels. I've been shopping for an 83 year old recovering from cancer surgery and a young man with severe cerebral palsy and I've had to endure dirty looks from people who are quick to judge.

Screw those people who are giving you dirty looks. You are helping people in need.

Considering numerous ass hats out there who did go batshit and hoard, under the current climate, I don't think it's unreasonable for someone to think that when they see that much stuff in one person's cart, but I probably wouldn't say anything because, well how do I REALLY know that;s the case?

I could see fights breaking out if someone is spotted with that much stuff.
