"Great Grocery Grab" Winner Pays It Forward

Harrell Griffin is the official winner of the "Great Grocery Grab," sponsored by the Rotary Club of Petal. Instead of taking three minutes to grab as much food as possible for himself, he decided to fill a shopping cart full of food for kids in need.

The grocery grab took place at the Petal Corner Market early Tuesday morning. Griffin raced up and down the aisles at Corner Market, filling one shopping cart with nearly seven hundred dollars in groceries. Lots of folks bought several raffle tickets to get in the running for the grocery grab, and Griffin only purchased one. He says he's donating all food collected at the grab to the Petal Children's Task Force.

"The supermarket has donated and said they will actually slice this for us into portions so they can distribute it to more people," Griffin said.

"It feels good because a lot of times we're given blessings in life and this is just one that we can turn around and give back to others."

The fundraiser benefits the Dolly Parton Imagination Library Project, and Griffin's contribution, in turn, will benefit kids in Petal.
