Not only is Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster a playmaker on the field, but the 24-year-old known for his work in the community.
Smith-Schuster added to his ledger of goodness Tuesday night, delivering a random act of kindness to a woman in need.
According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Smith-Schuster was checking out at the South Side Giant Eagle when they woman in front of him ran into trouble.
Shayisha Woods had her groceries bagged and was preparing to pay, but could not find her debit card.
That is when Smith-Schuster stepped in and paid for Woods’ groceries without a second thought.
“He basically took over and just put his debit card in the machine,” Woods told the Post-Gazette’s Chris Mueller. “He told us, ‘Don’t worry about it. I’m paying for everything.’ I kept asking him who he was and he was just smiling.”
Smith-Schuster was keeping a low profile beneath a purple hoodie, but posed for a selfie with Woods after covering $200 bill.
“It was so touching,” Woods told the Post-Gazette’s Chris Mueller. “Before I even knew it was JuJu, it meant a lot because no one has ever done anything like that for me before. People don’t just do this in the world today. He is such a humble guy. I wish I had his number because I would offer him a plate. I’m over here cooking a real good meal because of him.”
Smith-Schuster is currently in his fifth season with Pittsburgh. He has caught 15 passes for 129 yards, while also rushing for a score.
