Troopers Throw Birthday Party For 10-Year-Old Boy After No One Showed Up

Arkansas State Troopers came to the help of a 10-year-old boy named Toxey Andrews -- by throwing him a belated birthday party on April 4.

The boy's original birthday party was a disappointment after no one showed up. So, his mother Angela posted their dismay to Facebook.

Word got out. And a couple of days later, the troopers arrived.

Expressing her gratitude, Angela noted:

"... after Toxey got home from school, a caravan of 5 state troopers pulled up at our house, K-9 included. Not only did they bring him a birthday cookie cake, but they also brought him all kinds of presents, let him play with Rhino, the K-9, and play with the sirens in their cars. They ate his cake with him and played basketball with him."

In a Facebook post, the Arkansas State Police said, "We all want to make a difference, and these troopers showed today that #kindnessmatters."
