January 22, 2016 From the Richmond Police Department facebook page:
Good News before the storm: This grandmother/granddaughter were in a rough spot this week – stuck a gas pump without funds on a frigid night. Several folks bustled past in the cold but no assistance materialized. Until First Precinct Officer Joachin Okonkwo emerged from his cruiser, that is.
He happily filled the tank with fuel then bought the cold ladies a hot meal. He even pulled a ‘winter care package’ from his vehicle to give to the pair. Thrilled and grateful, the ladies were on their way.
With a major winter storm imminent we know folks will be on the lookout for opportunities to help each other through these next challenging few days.
