Ever since the death of George Floyd in May, anti-cop sentiments have been at an all-time high in the United States. Police officers are not getting the respect that they deserve. That’s why this story is so heartwarming. A struggling single mother donated her lottery winnings to a police officer.
Single Mother Struggles Amidst Coronavirus Pandemic
WFLA reported that Shetara Sims is a single mother from Kansas City, Missouri who has only $7 to her name and her bills past due. Like many Americans, Sims has been struggling during the coronavirus pandemic.
And, things only got worse for her when she lost her job last month.
However, things recently turned around for Sims when she found a $1 bill in a grocery store parking lot. She used it to purchase a scratch off lottery ticket and won $100.
Afterward, Sims’ 12 year-old daughter Rakiya Edmonson suggested that they donate the lottery winnings to a local police officer who had been in intensive care since being shot in the line of duty on July 2.
“She won $100, and I said we should donate it to the police officer that got shot for his family to go eat and see him.
