The Ohio town of Hinckley’s police department is praising the local community for stepping up and making Christmas a little brighter for a little boy- who was abandoned in a local cemetery.
The little boy, identified as “Tony,” was possibly dumped by his parents, who also discarded the family dog before speeding away in their vehicle.
The Hinckley Police Department stepped in as soon as they were alerted, and posted Tony’s photo in hopes that his parents would be identified.
Ultimately, according to FOX 8, it was determined that Tony and his dog had been abandoned, and he was transferred to foster care.
Moved by the incident, the local community brought truckloads of toys to HPD’s headquarters, prompting the agency to thank everyone for their support.
“From all of us at HPD we want to thank everyone for your kindness, thoughts, prayers and overwhelming love,” HPD Chief David Centner wrote on social media. “Our lobby is full from the gifts that have been dropped off. I reached out to my friend Santa and tomorrow morning after he has finished his deliveries he is going to stop at HPD. We are going to load the sleigh and make one final stop to see a our little friend.”
