(KPNX) A Phoenix, Arizona elementary student has all the school supplies she needs thanks to a police officer directing traffic outside her school and one of his colleagues.
Phoenix police said Officer Ben Carro was helping control traffic at Loma Linda Elementary School on August 5, the first day of class, when he witnessed a girl carrying her books and crying.
The girl told a school aid trying to comfort her that she was upset because she didn't have a backpack, and her mom couldn't buy one for at least two weeks.
