Sarah Robinson has been struggling to provide for her six children since her husband died in 2012. The Kansas woman lost her home and has been living mostly out of their car. Recently, she hit rock bottom when all of their possessions were stolen from the car.

“So I went to Walmart, grabbed clothes, shoes, diapers, wipes, and I just walked out, but they caught me,” Robinson told ABC News.

When Roeland Park police officer Mark Engravalle arrived, he noticed that some of the children with Robinson were barefoot and had dirty feet.Police Officer in El Paso buys homeless

“He noticed [what she stole] were necessities like diapers, shoes for the kids, some clothing,” said Roeland Park public information officer John Demoss. “He asked her what the situation was, and she broke down crying.”

Feeling moved by their plight, the officer took the children, ages 2-15, shopping for shoes and clothes and bought the family diapers and baby wipes.

ABC reports that since the incident was publicized, there has been an outpouring of support from the community for Robinson and her daughters.
