A veteran and police officer named Donald McCook, who diligently watches over his fellow citizens, got a huge surprise Thursday in Alabama.
The retired member of the National Guard 214th, who is now a police detective living in Dadeville, could not believe it when a group showed up to care for his home, KPVI reported Saturday.
Dunning Roofing owner Andrew McGreer previously tried to help McCook secure a replacement roof through insurance but was unsuccessful.
The community surprised McCook with the roof, landscaping, shutters, and they even pressured washed the house.
McCook’s supervisor had the task of making sure he was at home for the big reveal and they eventually came up with a plan for home visits with the police officers.
It was not as easy as they thought it would be, but in the end, his supervisor was able to keep McCook inside the house until the pair walked outside to hear the song “Bad Boys” blaring down the street.
McGreer was there to tell McCook the good news.
“You are not going to find anybody more selfless and more giving than Donald McCook,” Garcia explained, adding that no matter what, he will work hard and continue pouring himself out for others in need.
