Good Samaritan Does The Unexpected For Local Firefighters

On Oct. 25, a group of Tacoma, Washington firefighters were shopping for groceries when they were called to duty. The Central Pierce and Fire Rescue received a phone call stating someone needed CPR, so the crew members left their shopping cart full of ingredients for that evening's dinner to attend to the person in need.

After finishing, they returned to pay for their food. They were surprised to find an anonymous good Samaritan had already paid for it, leaving a note that read "Enjoy your meals. Thanks for all you do! God Bless." They then posted this statement with a picture of the good deed on their Facebook page:

"Our crew from Station 66 was buying dinner at Safeway when they were dispatched for a CPR call. When they returned to complete the sale, an anonymous caring person had already paid for their food. Whoever you are out there from the Safeway at 132nd at Meridian at South Hill, thank you so much for your generosity!!"

In addition, they posted pictures of their cooked meal. One woman said, "And the best part of this, the person who paid for their purchase likely got more joy from doing that than the firefighters got from the food in the bag. Try it sometime, see how it makes you feel to do something totally unexpected and random."
