That’s when Cameron took the police officer into his bedroom. Officer Acerra couldn’t b elieve what he found.The room was completely empty. There was no bed, no dresser – Cameron’s clothes were just thrown in a t-rash bag on the floor.Acerra learned that Cameron’s mom had fallen on hard times after making an une-xpected move from Texas to South Carolina to care for a sick relative.

Acerra talked to the boy and convinced him not to run away, but little did Cameron know that the officer was planning something much greater.Unbeknownst to Cameron or his family, Officer Acerra began to gather items for the family. Then one day he surprised them all by dropping off a brand new desk, chair, bed, TV, and Wii gaming system.

The entire family was shocked and Cameron was left in tears when he saw the officer’s generosity.Officer Acerra said he didn’t do it for praise or recognition.

“I put a smile on this kid’s face, and a friendship,” he said. “I think that’s well worth it.”
