The teen was living in a group home and had saved up enough money to buy the e-bike to start working for Uber Eats.

Officer Morici says she couldn't stop thinking about the story.

So, she led a charge to raise enough money to buy him a new bike.

Officer Morici says she didn't do it for a pat on the back, but because she felt a calling.
