A truck driver grabbing a meal at Bojangles in St. Johns County was touched when he saw two St. Johns County deputies buy a meal and drink for a homeless man Friday.
St. Johns County Deputies D. Pettinger and J. Gambill finished their meal and walked out of the restaurant, but came back with a guest.
"I then noticed them walk right back in with a homeless man who was hungry," said the truck driver, who identified himself as Donovan to the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office. "The deputies quietly bought the man a meal and a drink, looking for no attention or praise. I barely even caught the event myself."
Donovan was so moved by what he saw, that he snapped a picture of the homeless man and the two deputies before sharing the story with the Sheriff's Office.
The St. Johns County Sheriff's Office then shared the story to their Facebook page.
"I personally have seen constant ridicule and unfair bias towards the very men and women who serve and protect us each and every day," Donovan said. "I thank these deputies and all the hard-working public servants who walk into harm’s way for us all."
