Teenage Employee At Walmart Was Keeping A Secret - The Truth Finally Revealed

You may be wondering why Phil Bravin Powell is standing in the middle of his place of work without his shoes on and only wearing his socks. Well...it’s a beautifully heartwarming story. And since this photo was posted on Facebook, his story has gone viral, Fox New reports.

Powell was working at a Walmart in Lithia Spring, Georgia when he noticed that there was a barefoot homeless man sitting outside of his store. Powell was compelled to help the man. So much so that he sacrificed his own comfort to help the man.

He took the sneakers off of his own feet and gave them to the man. Shopper Myrna Kines noticed the ordeal and posted the shoeless photo of Powell on Facebook.

"I just witnessed this young man take the shoes off of his feet and give them to a man," Kines wrote in the post. "I will be contacting Walmart Corporate to tell them they have an awesome employee!"

Powell’s manager, Mike Kastensmidt, shared Kines' post and noticed that his employee wasn’t wearing any shoes. Powell said he was homeless for most of his life and knew how the man felt. He told Powell that he could take a pair of shoes from the store.

“He chose a $13.00 pair of slippers,” Kastensmidt said. “That's all he 'needed.'"
Way to go, Phil!
