Police Buys Groceries For Disabled Elderly Man After He Called 911 Because He Hadn't Eaten For 2 Days!

A group of police officers are highly praised by the community after going above and beyond their responsibility in terms of helping people in need.

According to reports, a group of Mt. Pleasant officers goes out of their way to help an elderly man after he called 911 because he hadn't eaten for 2 days.

The disabled elderly man called 911 and said he had not eaten a single meal for 2 days. Few minutes later, the group of kindhearted police officers showed up at his door with bags full of groceries that could last for a month or so.

The above pictured officers spent around $160 out of their own pockets to buy grocery items for the elderly man good for a month.

“I think he was shocked at the amount of food that we bought and just the fact that it was there without question,” said Nathan Bolton.

The elderly man said he appreciate everything this officer did for him. According to his story, his debit card, the one he use to buy food items, was stolen last weekend by a former caretaker. After hearing the said story, these officers also did their best to capture the thief which they successfully did.

After this truly heartwarming act done by the officers, the Mt. Pleasant police have started a food pantry to help citizens in situations like this. They are now accepting canned good donations at their police department.

What do you think of this kind act?

That is awesome, with all the bad talk going on about the police I am happy to see this. In our area recently the police took a fund up to help a family get heat because they had none in this winter weather. thanks for sharing

How touching! I hope police officers are all this kind especially to the elderly. I'm glad they caught the thief and was even inspired to put up a donation drive in case this happens to other elderly citizens.


That is so kind and amazing of them to do! Poor guy! I'm glad there was a group of people that cared enough to help.
