VICTORIA, TX – Remember the story about Old Mother Hubbard who went to the cupboard to get her dog a bone, only to discover her cupboard was bare?
Well, empty cupboards are not just found in nursery rhymes.
A couple of police officers in Victoria answered a call and discovered a family that had no food in the house.
So, senior officer Bryan Knief and cadet officer Anthony Vacarro went to the local Walmart where they got caught red-handed buying groceries for the family.
Rebecca Vasquez, who took a picture, asked them what they were up to. “They just felt the need that they needed to in the kindness of their hearts to go and buy this family food and I just thought it was awesome,” she said.
Vasquez posted her photo on Facebook and that made the two caring cops instant Internet celebrities and heroes to a community and to one grateful family.
