What Would You Do...

On my way home from work, I stopped by a gas station just a few blocks from my house. While there, I saw a girl I went to high school with. We knew each other but could not even be considered acquaintances. She was an odd but very sweet girl with a rough home life.

While there at the station, I saw that she was not able to pay with her food stamp card/EBT/whatever the thing is called. She tried a few times and I don't think it was successful as she started to dig and count cash. She had her twin girls (around toddler age) with her.

I was tempted to pay for her purchases (I am sure it wasn't much) but figured that could be awkward. I don't know that she even recognized me.

Would you have done anything in this situation?
