A PBSO Correction Officer and his family share an inspiring story.
“As we were attempting to go through garage and storage to prepare for a huge garage sale…we asked our 11 year son, Evan what he would like to do with all his old toys, games, etc. The choices were that we could sell it all at our garage sale and he could use the money to purchase whatever he wanted with the money…OR….he could donate them all to kids that have little if any gifts. We ensure him that it was totally his decision and either way, there was no pressure at all and he could let us know in a couple of days. Knowing how much he enjoys his electronics and how expensive they can be…my wife and I expected him to choose the money.
We were very shocked and elated when he said, “Dad…I decided that you and Mom always get me pretty much whatever I ask for and I’m pretty lucky.” I want to give everything to kids that aren’t as lucky as I am.
So, we spent two days gathering, wrapping and numbering 48 gift bags and just before Christmas arrived…drove an over-packed S.U.V. from Port St. Lucie to West Palm Beach to Little Kings and Queens Daycare to watch our son smile as he handed out gifts for over an hour to kids he had never met in the true spirit of Christmas.
It made our holiday and created a great family memory; made us very proud as parents and we wanted to share the story”
