Struggling Single Mom Donates Lottery Winnings To Cop Shot In Line Of Duty

Since the killing of George Floyd in May, anti-cop emotions in the United States have reached an all-time high. Police personnel are not treated with the dignity that they deserve. That is why this tale is so touching. A single mom in need gave her lotto winnings to a cop.

Shetara Sims is a single mom from Kansas City, Missouri, with just $7 in her bank account and debts that are way overdue. Sims, like many other Americans, has struggled throughout the coronavirus outbreak. Her situation was terrible when she lost her job.

Sims’ fortunes changed lately when she discovered $1bill in a grocery store parking lot. She spent it on a scratch-off lottery ticket and won $100.

Following that, Rakiya Edmonson, Sims’ 12-year-old daughter, recommended that they donate the lottery wins to a local cop who had been in critical care since being wounded in the line of duty on July 2.

Edmonson elaborated that her mom won $100, and she suggested that they give it to the cop who was shot so that his family could go eat and see him.

Considering her family’s current difficulties, Sims felt this was a fantastic idea.

Sims’ elder daughter, Edmonson’s big sister, was killed in 2012, and their family will never forget how Kansas City cops came to their aid during this unthinkable loss.

Sims stated that the detectives were quite helpful. They were there for them more than anybody else she can think of. They did things they weren’t required to do. They came to see her children. They accomplished a great deal. They were both dads and therapists. All revolved around them. She had never seen strangers show them such care. They simply gave them hope. They were beneficial to them.

When Sims contacted to give her a $100 gift days later, the local police department was moved. With everything that officers have been through in recent weeks, they were grateful for this gesture.

Police Sgt. Jake Becchina expressed that to hear her call and just showing gratitude for no purpose other than she’s appreciative, it’s incredibly impacting and truly heartwarming to them.

Sims made the contribution without giving her name or phone number, so cops had to look for her for days. When they discovered it was Sims who made the contribution, they created a GoFundMe campaign for her family, which has now garnered more than $29,000.

This is the type of pro-police tale that all Americans require at present. God bless Sims, and God bless American law enforcement.
