After a day’s hard work, Toledo Police Officer Justin Siminiak was really looking forward to his lunch, “I was given a $10 gift card to Chick-Fil-A. Figured it sounded good for lunch,” Siminiak explained.
But while he was walking into the parking lot, he spotted some homeless people on the corner of west Sylvania and Talmage.
Act of kindness
A witness shared a photo of officer Siminiak handing out Chick-Fil-A to a woman on the corner. “It was nice that we had positive interaction where they weren’t mad at me, telling them they had to leave or something. It was ‘just here’s some food have a good day,’” said Siminiak.
The Toledo Police Department has had a tough summer with the murder of Officer Anthony Dia, officers are really taking things day by day.
“It kind of resonated with me, at Officer Dia’s funeral. They said pay good deeds forward and stuff like that. It was just something I wanted to do,” said Siminiak.
Officer Siminiak did not know that someone had taken a picture of him when his wife showed it to him getting viral on Facebook.
