Selfless Woman Buys Out Payless Store So She Can Donate Shoes To Flood Victims

Tragedies, as devastating as they may be, bring a community together in a way that nothing else can. I like to believe that helping others is a natural human instinct, one that allows us to put aside our differences and lift each other up when it’s needed most. At least, that’s what one 25-year-old is doing by selflessly donating hundreds of shoes to victims of a horrific flood in Nebraska and her story is incredible.

25-year-old Addy Tritt recently bought out a local Hays Payless store and donated the more than 200 pairs of shoes to flood victims in Nebraska.

The donation was part of a relief shipment taken to Nebraska farmers by Fort Hays State University’s agriculture sorority Sigma Alpha. A recent FHSU graduate herself, Addy felt she needed to do something to give back to her community.

“I have been so blessed,” she said. “There have been so many great people in my life who have inspired me. I see so many horrible thingsin the news. So many people have helped me when I was down, I want to help if I can.”

Payless stores around the country are going out of business and liquidating all of their remaining assets.

When Hay’s Big Creek Crossing location dropped their prices to $1 a pair, Addy decided to approach Payless about purchasing all of the shoes left in the store.

After some negotiation, Addy was able to purchase the remaining 204 pairs of shoes for $100 which came out of her own pocket. The normal retail price of the shoes is estimated to have been more than $6,000.

But this isn’t the first charitable act Addy is known for.She also donated 66 bags of school supplies to local Hays students and has organized multiple clothing drives for the community. Addy says that her love for helping people stems from religious beliefs.

“I really feel I have been directed and guided to help people,” she said. “I think everything is a part of God’s plan. If you can do something for someone else, you need to find a way even if it is a pair of shoes.”

And the graduate hopes her actions motivate others to do their part.

“I just hope this inspires other people to volunteer and donate if you have been blessed,” she added.h/t Salina Post
