“In light of how times have changed, we have decided to change the way we do things a bit,” Paisley shared… We have a list of seniors that we’re basically dropping off what they need, following all protocols to make sure we’re doing this right.”
“Let’s get through this,” he added.
Paisley and his wife actress, Kimberly Williams-Paisley, own a free grocery store called The Store. The shop is run by volunteers.
Talking to the outlet last year, the country singer explained, “This is a grocery store with dignity for people who have fallen on hard times.”
“All of us are one unforeseen disaster away from rock bottom,” he added. “It’s nice to think about a place where when that happens to someone, they can use it to get back on their feet.”
