Great American, Jr.

There just are not enough kids like this around:



Greenfield police said a boy walked into the police department Friday and gave the clerk a bag of coins worth about $10.

Police were pleased but puzzled by the anonymous donation, so they spent the weekend looking at surveillance video from the lobby hoping to identify and thank their donor.

On Monday, Assistant Police Chief Paul Schlecht got his man.
WISN 12 News' news partners at Greenfield Patch report that Maxx Siepert's grandfather was a Milwaukee police officer who was killed in the line of duty in 1974.

Siepert said he had just studied the September 11 attacks in school. He said he learned of the great things police and firefighters did and he wanted to give back.

"Happy I did what I did because, one day, that's going to make a difference," he said.

Schlecht said the donation has lifted the spirits of the entire department.

"Officers are dealing with bad situations or difficult situations," he said. "To have someone come in with that act of kindness, it lifts morale."

Siepert said he hopes his donation will encourage others to do the same.



And guess what?
He did it again:


He stopped by the fire department Monday and donated $18.


Good Onya, Maxx!
