10 Year Old Donates Money to Police Department
GREENFIELD, WI (WKRC) -- Most ten year olds spend their money on candy and video games.
But as Carole Meekins tells us, there's a young man from Wisconsin who decided to do a good deed with his cash.
Usually surveillance video is used to capture crime, but this time the cameras captured kindness.
A boy walks into the Greenfield Police Department, drops off a bag of change, then makes a mad dash.
He left no note and no name but Greenfield PD were determined to find him.
11 year old Max Siepert, a sixth grader with a big smile and a giant heart, was the kind culprit.
Max saved up enough money over the summer to donate.
But why the police department? Max said, "My grandpa, who I never got to meet, he was a police officer, and he died at the line of duty."
The videotape donation was 10 dollars and three cents, but this gift is about more than the amount. It's about the fact that we can all witness compassion a child has shown for complete strangers.
No word on how the department will spend the money.
