"pretty much in tears about the ticket"

Naomi Norelli is a single mom from Colorado. During her second pregnancy, she was diagnosed with cancer. After overcoming that condition, she moved to Denver for a job, but it fell through. Finally she was able to find another job, but then her car died, and she still owed $400 for new registration tags. She could not afford them. "Trying to cover rent, child care, food, groceries, the whole nine yards on one budget is really hard," she said.  Things could not get worse, but then they did. She was pulled over by police because of her expired tags. She explained why she could not afford them, and received a ticket. She arrived at work that morning "pretty much in tears about the ticket."

That's when two officers showed up at her office unexpectedly. They had bags of groceries. She learned that anonymous donor had paid her ticket. Then the officers brought more groceries, a Starbucks gift card, and a toy for her son. "I was totally and completely stunned," Naomi said.
