One homeless family is off the streets thanks to two very generous Sacramento County Sheriff’s Deputies.
Deputies Tim Yee and Johnny Le saw three children camping behind a Walmart and found a family living there in their van. They had been there for months.
Shannon Loveless, the mother, says that she saw a side of police that she didn’t know they had. “We only see the negative side of police officers, so to see this side of them is really awesome,” she said.
She and her family were making lunch when they saw the deputies coming through the woods. She was scared. “It was kind of a shock because I didn’t know whether we were going to get in trouble or what?”
Deputy Johnny Le called it a miracle. The deputies went to work and brought the family groceries and some toys to cheer up the kids.
Deputy Yee told reporters, “There is a softer side of us, they see this they see the flashing red and blue lights, they look at us bad, we are there to help them and their situation.”
The family was able to even get into a motel that same day.
Loveless says, “Just for [the kids] to be able to have a warm place to sleep and watch cartoons, you know things that kids do, you take it for granted. It’s a total game changer; the motivation is there, the morale is there, I’m ready, let’s get this year right!”
