Police officers give gift of Christmas to single mom, son

PHOENIX, AZ (KPNX) — Officers with the Phoenix Police Department helped a mom in need get a Christmas tree to share with her young son.

A call led officers to meet the Kirsten May, a single mom who had recently lost her job and was just days from eviction.

“I lost my job,” May said. “I lost daycare. I was completely at rock bottom.”

The officers, Jason Harris, Brian Peters and Ben Carro, learned of the May’s situation and found a way to help her out.

The Phoenix Police Department wrote on Facebook:

They knew that another officer, Manuel Reyes, works at Home Depot as an off duty officer. They brought him in on their plan and asked the manager of the Home Depot at 36th Street and Thomas Road for some help. Home Depot kindly donated a Christmas tree and a base to give the mother and her son a better Christmas.

Another group helped pay May’s rent through the month. According to KPNX, May will start another job soon and the family will be back on their feet.
