He says he was fed up with people hoarding toilet paper and often leaving none for seniors.

Since he owns a business he was able to order it in bulk. Now he's giving it away for free.

People 65 and older can come to get free toilet paper at Sears Awning Company, Monday through Friday anytime from 8 A.M., - 4 P.M.
