FRANKLIN COUNTY – Operation Christmas Tree helps dozens of Franklin County families each year with food, clothing and gifts.
Rather than a new toy, one little girl wanted a deputy to bring their patrol vehicle by and visit her.
Just before Christmas Day, Franklin County Deputy Morgan Funck made the wish come true.
Deputy Funck stopped by the family's home and not only visited with the one girl, but had an opportunity to see all of the children at the residence.
"Their faces told the story. They were all so excited to see me when I arrived. I may have been as excited as they were." Deputy Funck said with a grin. "I had them get in my cruiser, turned on the blue lights. I talked about the car's equipment and what I carried on my duty belt. We had a wonderful stay."
