A Chick-fil-A employee’s act of kindness has gone viral after he was filmed chasing a customer down after she left without getting her full order. Jared Wilson, 19, was working at a Midlothian, Virginia location when he realized one of the chicken sandwiches the customer paid for was left out of her order.
"I knew I could probably catch the customer, so I figured I might as well give it a shot," Wilson says. And he was right. The energetic worker caught up to the customer’s car before she drove off with an incomplete order.
The video of Wilson’s sprint to save the day were shared on social media, where it didn’t take long for him to become a viral sensation. Twitter users compared him to Forest Gump and some went as far as to call him a “true American hero.” But Wilson says he was just doing “what we’re expected to do” as Chick-fil-A employees.

Every Monday, Edward Kydd drives two routes for Meals on Wheels, and over time the Rockledge, Florida man has traveled 13,332 miles and given 1,742 hours of service to them. That takes a long time and it’s an impressive record - especially since Kydd is 101.
He hits the road with his traveling companion, his 73-year-old daughter, Janet von Berg, bringing food to house bound seniors. And all that volunteering is what Kydd credits with keeping him alive and kicking. “I think the reason I’m going to be 102 in July is because I’ve stayed active,” he says.

A 28-year veteran of the Dallas Police force has started a program to get shoes on the growing feet of kids in need. Officer Brian Nolff got the idea for it after seeing lots of young kids in the neighborhoods he patrols wearing worn out sneakers as long as possible, even if they don’t fit anymore.
Now, thanks to donations from Dallas businesses, Nolff and his fellow officers are giving out 650 pairs of shoes this summer. And while getting a much-needed pair of kicks is a confidence booster, there’s more to this than footwear. It’s about building relationships with the youth in the community.
"For them to see us in a different light and kind of more relaxed atmosphere was good for them." Nolff says. “I’ll be doing this probably the rest of my career.”
