Grocery Store Worker Invites Autistic Teen To Help Stock The Groceries.

Jordan Taylor works at Rouses Supermarket in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. One day, Jordan noticed he was being watched while refilling the store’s coolers. It was a young, autistic boy named Jack Ryan.

Jordan could see that Jack was following his every move, with curious amazement. So Jordan invited the young man over to help him fill those coolers. Jack excitedly took him up on his offer, and began helping him put those food items in the coolers.

As Jack helped the store worker, his dad, took a video of the two working together. Jack’s sister, Delaney, posted the video on Facebook, saying: “Talk about a stand-up young man!!!! We all know autism makes going out difficult, and sometimes grocery stores can be a challenge. This young man took the time to slow down and allow Jack to help for over 30 minutes, guiding him as he finished his task.”

Many responded in a positive light to Jordan letting Jack help him, and someone even started a GoFundMe page to raise money for Jordan to go to college. The goal was set at $10,000. But it quickly hit $100,000. With that, Jordan should be all set for continuing his education.

Added Delaney: “He could have ignored him. He could have made an excuse and said he couldn’t allow him to help. Instead, he let him have his moment and, in turn, gave my family a moment we will never forget.”
