“Debbie explained that she has a regular passenger who is a homeless mother with three young children. The mother lives in a hotel in Allston with her children. Debbie purchased lots of gifts and treats for her little kids,” Gebru wrote on his Facebook page.
“She’s had the gift bags with her for a few days now since she hasn’t seen the mother and her kids on the bus.”
The MBTA got word of Gebru’s post and posted a salute of its own to Crasco on Twitter.MORE NEWS: 'Abortion Is Essential': Massachusetts Lawmakers Urge Action As Supreme Court Reconsiders Roe V. Wade
