THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

Adrionna Kimbrough was working her regular Saturday night shift at KFC in Thomasville when she said she met someone who made an everlasting impression on her.

"It just touched me, I knew right then and there that I had to do something, I wanted to help him," said Kimbrough.

A man named Tony who appeared to be homeless, walked through restaurants doors.

"It was just on my heart to help him after that,"said Kimbrough.

Adrionna said she noticed Tony go back outside to sit under a tree and that something was tugging on her heart to help him.

"It wasn't freezing but it was cold, the wind was blowing and he was just up under the tree," said Kimbrough.

She immediately called her mom after work so the two of them could go to Walmart to grab a few things for Tony.

"My mom was like that's a lot of money,and I was like I don't care. My heart was on it at that point so I couldn't turn it down," said Kimbrough.

Adrionna bought Tony a jogging suit, travel kit, blanket, and a bag for anything he wanted to carry with him. 

"He was so appreciative of it, he talked to me about it for 10 minutes," said Kimbrough.

Shortly after Adrionna posted on Facebook, a post that went viral. 

Now all she hopes is that maybe it will get some attention for Tony.

"Hopefully somebody that knows him will see it, can you know, maybe come get him," said Kimbrough.

Adrionna said that while talking to Tony, he told her that he is from Tenneesee and is trying to get to Fort Myers in Florida.
