Cherry Hill Police Surprise Girls With Free Slurpee Coupons Following Act Of Kindness

CHERRY HILL, NJ (CBS) – Cherry Hill Police officers surprised two young girls with coupons for free 7-Eleven slurpees earlier this week after the girls showed them a random act of kindness.

Police say on July 11, the girls were with their grandmother at a Cherry Hill 7-Eleven for “Free Slurpee Day” when they saw a police officer in the store.

Ten-year-old Gina and her seven-year-old sister Dana thanked the officer for his service.

Authorities say once they left, Gina and Dana thought about what they could do to show police officers their appreciation, and they decided to ask their grandmother to buy a cake so they could drop it off at police headquarters.

Later that day, Community Relations Officer Houlihan and Officer Holloway visited Gina and Dana to share their gratitude. Police say the girls were very happy to see the officers standing at their door with free slurpee coupons.

Officers then gave the girls a tour of their police vehicle.

Police say Gina and Dana told them they simply wanted to do something to show their support for the police force.
