Khloé Kardashian is lending a helping hand to some of the most vulnerable amid the coronavirus pandemic.

For the past week, the reality star, 35, has been hitting up different stores in the Los Angeles area to pay for elderly customers’ groceries, PEOPLE can confirm.

TMZ was the first to report the news. According to the outlet, Kardashian has covered tabs for shoppers at different Trader Joe’s and Ralphs supermarkets, which have been opening early to let seniors in before other shoppers.

Last month, Kardashian’s sister Kylie Jenner, 22, donated $1 million to help medical professionals purchase face masks and other necessary protective gear during the outbreak. The makeup mogul and her mom Kris Jenner, 64, also joined forces with beauty conglomerate Coty, which owns a majority stake in Kylie Cosmetics and Kylie Skin, to produce hand sanitizer for emergency and healthcare workers battling the virus at hospitals.

Kim Kardashian West‘s shapewear brand SKIMS also donated $1 million to families affected by COVID-19.

As of April 18, the coronavirus has infected more than 2.2 million people worldwide, according to a New York Times database. The U.S. has at least 717,825 confirmed cases, and over 34,000 people in the country have died from coronavirus-related illnesses.
