14NEWS, the Tri-State’s News

A group of cops showed the true spirit of Christmas by making one elderly woman’s holiday special.

The officers from Parkville, Mo., make it a point to checkup on Edwina Hughes, 87 as often as possible, reported KCTV.

“I’ve been checking on her all summer long since I started here,” said Parkville police Officer Nicholas Pence, who Hughes said is her favorite.

They say she doesn’t ask them for a lot, but they were determined to do something special for her this Christmas so they asked her what she wanted, reported KCTV.

“She said she wanted a Christmas tree,” said Pence. “Some Kentucky Fried Chicken and a few chairs.”

The officers pooled their money and brought her the tree, complete with the decorations, and a hot meal. They also purchased dining room chairs that are set to be delivered this weekend.

“I think it’s wonderful, but I don’t deserve it really,” Hughes said. “I really appreciate it. I don’t want to talk too much cause I’ll start crying.”

The officers say it is her nature that made them want to do this for her.

“She will give anything she has for anybody,” Pence said to KCTV.
