MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) – Myrtle Beach police officers made sure one little girl had a place to put her Christmas presents this year.

During the department’s Shop with a Hero event on Saturday, Pfc. Warner found out the girl she was paired with, didn’t have a Christmas tree at home.

Warner got her fellow officers to go to Lowe’s to look for a tree.

Lowe’s management found out that the officers were shopping for a little girl in need and they donated a tree, along with lights and ornaments.

“I am so thankful for the work of our officers this weekend,” Myrtle Beach Police Chief Amy Prock said. “Our officers do things like this in the community throughout the year but not all instances get recognized. I am very appreciative of their willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty and bring the community together this holiday season.”

The officers delivered the tree to the little girl’s home and made sure it decorated and ready for presents under it.
