Imagine you feel all alone in the world, seemingly like being forgotten with nobody around to offer help when you need it the most.
That is the unfortunate reality for many elderly folks who do not have close friends or family members to pop in and assist with the things they are unable to do. Some even go without basic necessities because they simply cannot afford them. Louis lived in this way for a while until some kind police officers stepped in.
Louis Hicks, is a 92-year-old World War II Veteran, who recently discovered someone had been Stealing Tools from the Shed behind his home in Austin, Texas (USA). He called 911 to report the Theft and Officers from the Austin Police Department responded.
While helping Louis file a report, Officer Chastity Salazar noticed something Dangerous: Louis was using his Gas Stove and Oven to Heat his House!!! He had been doing this ever since his old heater burned a hole in the floor.
That was when Chastity decided to call her Colleagues, who then got in touch with Local Charity Organizations. On 29 January, she returned to his home with a few other officers in tow. Louis was Overcome with Emotion as they presented him with a Brand New Electric Heater.
“I’ve never had no one to do nothing for me,” Louis tearfully explained. “After my mother passed away and left me to take care of my two sisters … nobody never did nothing to help me.”
“That’s just what we do as police officers,” Chastity said, adding that she is grateful to be able to pay him back for his service. But the officers are not stopping there. Officer Bino Cadenas has been visiting Louis regularly and tweeted out a wish list of items for Louis.
