A mother of three from Buffalo, New York, didn’t envision raising three more children this year, but she was the first to volunteer to take in three toddlers after their mom was killed at a street party in September.

On Oct. 13, Lashelle Roberson walked into the doors of Basil Family Dealership to buy a car that could accommodate her growing family. When she returned on Friday, community members partnered with the local car dealership to surprise her with a 2016 Dodge Caravan and plenty of gifts for the kids, according to Spectrum News.
