According to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office, one family was seeking refuge at a hotel — although they couldn’t afford a room.
In a Wednesday Facebook post, the sheriff’s office said its Crime Reduction Unit responded to a call at a local hotel about a man who couldn’t afford a room.
The deputies soon found out that the man has a family with small children, the sheriff’s office said.
Due to the “inclement weather,” the deputies paid out of their own pockets to make sure the family could stay at the hotel for the night and keep warm.
The act of kindness had already garnered well over 300 comments with many Facebook users even looking to pay it forward by reimbursing the officers.
