PHOENIX – A group of Phoenix police officers helped make the holidays bright for a struggling mom and her 4-year-old son.
Just days ago, mom Kristen May said she hit rock bottom, facing eviction from her home.
“I lost my job,” May told KXCO. “I lost daycare. I was completely at rock bottom.”
She has a 4-year-old son named Nicholas, and she worried she wouldn’t be able to give him any presents this year.
When a group of police officers learned what happened, they contacted a Home Depot store that helped get a tree for the family for free.
The officers delivered it on top of a Phoenix police car.
“I cried like a little kid,” said May. “My son gets to experience what holidays are about thanks to what these officers did and are doing. It shows they don’t just arrest people.”
And the officers din’t stop there. A group called Angels on Patrol is covering May’s rent this month. The officers are also planning on collecting gifts for Nicholas and his mother.
After the kindness from the police officers, things are looking up for May and her son. She told KXCO that she was able to secure a job last week and will be returning to work soon.
