Random act of kindness: 11-year-old stops to help a man in need

November 22, 2018 05:44 PM

A young upstate New York boy didn't let the snow and cold stop him from helping someone in need.

Eleven-year-old Josh Cuzdey and his mom were grocery shopping just outside of Albany last week.


He noticed a man in a wheelchair, with grocery bags, struggling to get through the snow-filled parking lot. Without thinking, Josh ran over and pushed his chair for him.

Turns out, that man has no car, and was trying to get home a half mile away.

The man, 62-year-old Keith Oakes, lost his right leg and was grateful Josh offered to help.

"Saved me a lot of being very cold and wet and a lot of time, so I was very appreciative," Keith Oakes. 

"I knew he had to do this every day going forward and back to get his food, and I just didn't like that," said Josh Cuzdey.

Listen to this, Josh has done more good than this one random act of kindness. Every year around the holidays, Josh collects food for the hungry and even donates some of his own Christmas gifts to Toys for Tots.
