VIDEO: Tennessee Officers Take Groceries to Disabled Man

A group of Mt. Pleasant, TN, police officers are being recognized for going out of their way to help an elderly man over the weekend.

Saturday night, the 79-year-old disabled man called dispatchers and said he had not eaten in two days.

A short time later, a group of officers showed up at his door with several bags full of groceries. The officers had spent $160 out of their own pockets to make sure the man had enough food in his kitchen to last him a month.

The man is on a fixed income and relies on his social security benefits each month.

He said he didn’t have any money to buy food because a former caretaker stole his debit card last weekend.

Mt. Pleasant police have started a food pantry to help citizens in situations like these.

They are accepting canned food donations at the police department, WKRN TV reports.
