HAPEVILLE, Ga. — A local police officer's act of generosity is serving as a reminder of hope and humanity during the holiday season.
Sergeant James Carroll of the Hapeville Police Department said he was called by a higher power to bless others this holiday season. So, that's exactly what he did.
Sgt. Carroll went to the bank and took out 10 $100 bills and handed them out to 10 different families who he thought could use a little extra help.
His gesture was met with hugs, tears, and laughs.
In the days leading up to Christmas and amid a holiday season that highlights kindness and giving, Sgt. Carroll's actions served as a fine example of the reason for the season.
