SPRINGDALE (KFSM) – A Springdale Police officer bought a meal for a family last week, according to a post on the department’s Facebook page.
The family was eating at a local restaurant with a five-month-old baby when the officer appeared and talked with them for a few minutes. The officer also asked how old the baby was.
Later, when the family went to take care of their bill, they were told it was paid in full, the post states. They were then handed the handwritten note pictured below.
The note says, “Congratulations. Have a good night. SPD.”
The family said they did not know the officer, and they were left speechless.
“We are just blown away and are speechless about this. It really makes us proud of the people who are protecting us,” the mother said.
