A Folsom mom struggling to make ends meet is now blessed by the kindness of a complete stranger after having her car, money and other valuables stolen last week.

FOX40 brought you the story of Amanda Teach. Her Honda Civic was taken from right in front of her mom's house on Ardfern Way in Folsom on Thursday.

Our viewer David Briceno watched her story and decided to step in.  He recently bought a new car and didn't know what to do with his old one.

"I saw your program and I was like 'that's the person who needs this'," said Briceno.

Briceno handed her the keys to his Acura Wednesday and Teach could not have been more grateful.

"I really was feeling down about people, but it's amazing to see there's kindhearted people that still exist," Teach said.

The mom of four-month-old Syren said it was tough to take care of all her responsibilities while relying on her family to drive her around, but now with her new car, she will be able to get to wherever she needs to go.

"It's going to make everything so much easier," said Teach.

Teach's green, 2000 Honda Civic is still missing. The license plate number is 5TQU511. Anyone with information should contact the Folsom Police Department.
