A compassionate 7-Eleven employee who was in the process of being fired after helping out a homeless man has finally gotten the good news she deserves, NewsCenter 5 reported.

Ava Lins, 19, told the news outlet that she was taken off the schedule at her job in Salem, Mass., after she gave a visibly struggling homeless man a free cup of coffee.

“He was freezing,” Lins told NewsCenter 5. “You could tell. It was one of the coldest nights of the month.”
