A Walmart manager working in Evans, Georgia, noticed a customer who passed out in the store and did not think twice before he stepped up to help her. 

Thankfully the woman regained her consciousness. However, Jason Lewis saw how she lost her balance as she tried to get back onto her feet, so he acted quickly.

THE EMPLOYEE'S ACTIONS 

He got down on the floor next to the woman and allowed her to lean on him for support. The moment was captured by a customer, Brittany McKee, in 2017. 

McKee, a registered nurse, stopped by the scene to see if she could help. She revealed that the older woman mentioned that her blood thinners sometimes made her dizzy.

HE SERVED HER 

McKee stayed with the woman, her daughter, and a few Walmart staff members. However, she was in awe of the actions of one employee in particular. 

How Lewis tended to the woman left McKee speechless. She said

"He literally got down on the floor to serve her, not because he was asked to do it, he wasn't, but because he wanted to ... What I experienced today was love, kindness, and serving."

ANOTHER EMPLOYEE GOES THE EXTRA MILE 

Employees work with people all day long, and they have to handle everyone with a smile. Some workers go the extra mile when they see a customer in need, just like Walmart manager Jason and Whole Foods Market employee TJ Lawlor.

Lawlor worked in Redwood, California, and when a young boy with Down Syndrome visited the store in 2015, he did not question his presence. Instead, he asked Riley Dehne to help pack the freezers, and the youngster continued to help for years.

They developed a special friendship, and Lawlor's compassion boosted Dehne's confidence and always made him smile. Both Lawlor and Lewis displayed just how much a small gesture of kindness can mean to someone else.
