A homeless man was given a pair of fresh, warm socks by a local police officer. Unbeknownst to the officer, a local businessman captured the scene and shared it on social media.
It had rained heavily the night before a homeless man sat on the curb outside of a Wawa in Lindenwold, New Jersey.
“This homeless fellow is always walking up and down the pike,” said Nick Renn, a funeral director at Danks-Hinski Funeral Home. “He sat on the curb and took off his shoes, and his socks looked like they were disgusting and wet.”
What Renn saw next truly touched him.
A police officer who had been inside the Wawa walked over to his patrol vehicle, took out a new pair of socks and handed them to the man.
Without the officer knowing, Renn snapped a photo of the act of kindness, which he shared on social media.
“It was really a wonderful thing to see,” he said. “It was so nice that the officer would do that for him.”
The Lindenwold Police Department confirmed that the officer was Ron Burrows, a 19-year veteran of the force.
