One New York police officer is warming the hearts of people all around the country— all because he warmed the feet of one person.
New York City Police Officer Lawrence Deprimo kneeled down on a cold night in New York last week to put new boots on a homeless man. Lawrence is 25-years-old. The officer bought them after noticing the man was barefoot and talked to him for a while.
His act of kindness would have gone unnoticed if it weren’t for Jennifer Foster, a tourist from Arizona. She took the picture on her cell phone and posted it to the NYPD’s Facebook page.
That photo, posted on Tuesday, now has more than 317 thousand likes, 74 thousand shares and 19 thousand comments.
