Tyler Perry covered grocery bills for senior citizens at dozens of stores in Georgia and Louisiana on Wednesday.

The actor-producer picked up all tabs during the senior hour at Kroger and Winn-Dixie grocery stores early Wednesday morning.

It's not the first time that he helped people in need. Last year, Perry used his private plane to send supplies to hurricane survivors in the Bahamas.

Still, many seniors were in disbelief when they heard he picked up their bills.

"It was amazing to see their reactions," said Suzanne Balaylock, a Winn Dixie store manager. "Some people cried, which, of course, I'm very emotional, so it made me tear up. Some people were like, 'This isn't happening, how can this be this happening, this is just amazing, why would he do this?'"
