Green Bay cop gets boy McDonald’s meal, helps him when parent couldn’t pick him up on birthday
GREEN BAY, Wis. — A police officer went out of his way to help a Green Bay boy feel special on his birthday.
The Green Bay Police Department said Tuesday that an officer responded to an area elementary school for a child who wasn’t picked up at the end of the school day.
Police said the boy’s parent is incarcerated and there were no other known family contacts. It was also the boy’s birthday.
The officer took the boy to McDonald’s for a free meal from the restaurant, then a ride around in the police car for his birthday.
Family was eventually located and the child was dropped off, the report said.
“Thank you to Officer Robinson for taking some extra time to celebrate the child’s birthday,” Green Bay police said in a statement. “We are proud to have him as part of the GBPD team!”
