"God has blessed us in our business abundantly, and it's our job to care for our community and not take advantage of a situation," Grosh told The Herald-Mail.
Grosh’s wife, niece and two teenage friends waved “Free TP” signs as drivers honked their approval on the highway, the newspaper reported.
"(The outbreak) is a big effect, and we're trying to make a little bit of difference in our community," Grosh told The Herald-Mail.
Grosh said he began giving away the rolls at 3:30 p.m., and 90 minutes later he was into the third case of 96 rolls, the newspaper reported. The total tally was five cases distributed when Grosh packed the toilet paper away at 6:30 p.m. He said he would continue either Saturday or Sunday at another location near Clear Spring.
Grosh declined to say where he bought the paper goods or how much he paid for it.
"I said, 'I'm not selling it, I'm going to give it away' and (my source) said, 'I'll give you whatever you want,'" Grosh told The Herald-Mail. "He knew I wasn't going to try to take advantage of the situation.
“We’re just trying to be a blessing and make somebody’s life a little bit better.”
