After witnessing a single mother crying outside a grocery store, a Boston Police officer decided to help her out.
Officer Ben Peguero had just finished his shift Tuesday night when he found 37-year-old and mom of three girls Jennifer Velazquez crying on the sidewalk.
“I heard a woman sitting by the curbside crying,” Peguero told Boston 25. “She was checking out by the cashier with her groceries [when] her EBT card was declined. There weren’t enough funds.”
“I felt bad for her, and I told her, ‘Come in with me, we will go in and grab some things,’" said Peguero.
Thanks to Peguero, the kids now have $200 worth of food and will stay well-fed during the quarantine.
