A Domino's Pizza employee got a tip earlier this month that saved her from being evicted from her home.

Natasha Boyer, a 21-year-old single mother, was tipped $1,046 in cash after delivering a $5.99 pizza to Sycamore Creek Church in Pickerington, Ohio, the Columbus Dispatch reports.

The tip came at a critical time for Boyer.

That morning, she had received an eviction notice for not paying her $791 rent, according to the Dispatch.

The church brought the unsuspecting Boyer on stage in front of a congregation to give her the gift on October 4, according to a video of the moment.

Rev. Steve Markle, Sycamore's lead pastor, thanked her for the $5.99 pizza and handed her the wad of cash.

Boyer immediately burst into tears, buried her face in her hands, and hugged Markle. Domino's delivery drivers typically earn about $8 an hour, according to GlassDoor.

YouTube/SycamoreCreekMediaBoyer told the Dispatch that she was able to pay her rent and a late fee with the gift, and still had some money left over.

The gift "got me out of that and got me out of a hole," she told the newspaper.

The church gave the driver the tip following a month of encouraging congregants to do random acts of kindness.

Here's the video of Boyer's reaction.
