When Robbins met a single mother with six children who had been living on the streets, she knew what she had to do.

"When I picked them up they didn't have anything," Robbins said. "And by anything, I mean anything. The mom had just a little grocery bag with, like, four diapers in it and some wipes and that's it."

Robbins shared their story and support from the community started pouring in. Thanks to the support, she was able to get them in an extended stay, food and clothing.

"We take the smallest things for granted," Robbins said. "It's a reminder we have so much to be thankful and grateful for even in times we are in right now.”
