When you’re 8-years-old your birthday is one of the most important days of the year, it’s almost as important as Christmas. There’s nothing more exciting for youngsters than planning their birthday celebrations. There’s so much to do, from picking out the tastiest cake to sending out invites to all of your classmates. Your birthday is a day full of love and joy where you’re surrounded by your loved ones, however, one schoolboy thought he was having the worst birthday ever until one very caring police officer stepped in.
Officer Darryl Robinson of Green Bay Police came to one youngster’s rescue when he was left alone on his birthday.
Office Robinson received a call from an elementary school when one boy wasn’t picked up at the end of the school day.
The concerned officer paid a visit to the school after they phoned the police station. What he discovered next will break your heart.
The young boy’s mother was in prison and nobody had shown up to collect the little one on his birthday.
The officer’s heart went out to the little boy. He didn’t want him to spend his birthday alone and upset so he made it his mission to cheer him up.
Officer Robinson decided to take the boy to every kid’s favourite fast-food place McDonalds. He treated the 8-year-old to a free cheeseburger. The local McDonalds gives free vouchers to members of the law enforcement, how kind!
The officer had to wait for a member of the boy’s family to be contacted, so after their meal at McDonalds, he decided to take the youngster for a spin on his police bike.
The pair whizzed around whilst waiting for the boy’s grandfather to collect him.
Thankfully, his grandfather showed up and took the youth home.
Green Bay Police department shared the heart-warming story on their Facebook page. Officer Robinson had no idea it would receive so much love.
Officer Robinson didn’t even know the story was going to be shared on social media. His co-workers decided to surprise him as it was his birthday the day after he helped the young boy.
They wrote, “Thank you to Officer Robinson for taking some extra time to celebrate the child's birthday; we are proud to have him as part of the GBPD team!”
The post has received over 17,000 likes and has been flooded with supportive comments.
Officer Robinson shared, “I do plan on contacting him in the future and checking on him.”
Officer Robinson is a true hero.
