5-year-old boy buys lunch for police officers with allowance

WINSLOW TWP., N.J. (WPVI) -- A little boy in New Jersey is a huge fan of men and women in uniform and he wanted them to know it.

5-year-old William Evertz Jr. delivered lunch to police officers at Winslow Township Wednesday.

He saved up his allowance and helped treat the officers to Subway sandwiches.

He said he wanted the officers to eat healthy.

And as an unexpected bonus, he was given a special police department shirt and other gifts.

William's mom says this was all the little boy's idea because he simply loves police officers.

"Williams's actions are remarkable for anyone, let alone a 5 year old. Winslow Twp PD commends William for his acts of kindness and his parents for raising such a great kid," the Winslow Police Department wrote on their Facebook page.
