Florida Man Buys 100 Generators To Send To The Bahamas –
Alec Sprague, a resident of Jacksonville, said he went to a Costco store to buy a generator and saw a man purchasing over 100 of them.
“Was just in Cosco off Collins getting a generator (at $450 each) and this guy right here is purchasing over 100 generators and food to send to the Bahamas! All I could do was shake his hand and thank him! There still are good people in the world!” Sprague wrote on Facebook.
According to CNN, his receipt read $49,285.70. That also included peas, beans, coffee, salt, pepper and other essentials.
The man, who wishes not to be named, said he doesn’t want the attention and would rather that people focus on helping those affected by Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas.
“It’s important that we help each other out. It’s better than just sitting there,” he said. “You see a need and you fill it.”
However, getting the generators, food and supplies to the Bahamas from Jacksonville is a challenge.
Trucks are driving the supplies to Stuart, Florida, and then they will be transported to the Bahamas by boat.
