GREENFIELD (WKOW) – Instead of spending money on candy and video games, an 11-year-old boy from Greenfield decided to donate his money to the local police department.
The police department's surveillance video caught something more than just crime, a gesture of kindness. Max Siepert, a sixth grader, dropped off a bag of change at the Greenfield Police Department and left without leaving a note or his name.
Siepert says, "I just walked up to her and said, ‘I would like to donate all this money to the Greenfield Police Department.'"
Siepert says he saved up $10.03 throughout the summer to donate. He decided to give to the police department because his grandfather was a police officer and died in the line of duty.
The department was impressed with the gift, but they were even more impressed with Siepert's compassion and kindness towards strangers.
When asked about his donation, Siepert says, "One day that's going to make a difference. If every person would do that, we would have such a great world. It would be awesome!"
