Firefighters provide for a grandmother in need

ALBUQUERUQUE (KRQE) – Bernalillo County and Albuquerque firefighters teamed up Sunday to give a grandmother with a big heart, a big gift.

Carmen has custody of her seven grandkids but needed a car and food so firefighters had a shopping spree at Costco Sunday morning spending nearly a thousand dollars to get enough groceries and supplies to fill an SUV.

They then donated the car and everything inside to Carmen which was a much needed boost to a grandma in need.
