DETROIT (WWJ) — Police officers at Detroit’s 11th Precinct got a special birthday surprise on Saturday.
A nine-year-old Detroit girl decided to celebrate her birthday not by receiving gifts, but by giving them. Samya McLaughlin brought bagged lunches — made up of sandwiches, chips, fruit and a cookie — that she paid for with her own birthday money as a gift for officers at the precinct.
“I was thinking that I should feed the police officers because I wanted to show them that I support them and I thank them for all that they do,” McLaughlin said. “I wanted to show them that all lives matter.”
