Great job by members of the Greenwood Police Department. Keep the good work up. Big hearts doing great things.On Feb 2nd, Officer Calvert responded to a residential entry. After investigation, it was determined all of 4 year old Evelyn's Shopkins were taken, among other items of the household. Evelyn was so upset.

Officer Calvert took it upon himself to ask coworkers and friends if they had any unwanted Shopkins to donate to Evelyn. Not only did Officer Calvert receive donated Shopkins but also cash donations. A fellow officer, Officer Tompkins, volunteered to go toy shopping for Evelyn with the cash donations.

Officers Calvert and Tompkins delivered the donated and new toys today, just in time for Evelyn's birthday!

Special thanks to Officers Calvert and Tompkins for going above and beyond your normal duties.
