Pacheco was nominated by the school nurse. The middle schooler heard about some items that the nurse's office could use to better assist students throughout the year.  

She decided to use her own money to buy the supplies. She and her mom went shopping, and then the young girl brought in a big bag of supplies to the nurse's office, which included nine pairs of black leggings for girls, as well as several packs of feminine hygiene products.  

This gesture of kindness demonstrates Pacheco's great generosity and thoughtfulness towards her fellow students.
