Good Samaritan donates gift cards to every officer in police department

A man simply named 'Sam' dropped off $60 Applebee's gift cards for every member of the Ballwin Police Department Tuesday.

BALLWIN, MO. - St. Louis is home to some amazing people, and one of those people is named Sam.

Sam, who would only identify himself by his first name, dropped off $60 Applebee's gift cards for every single member of the Ballwin Police Department.

He said he wanted to show the department appreciation for what they do each and every day.

The Ballwin Police Department posted about Sam's generous gift on its Facebook page, and the post has been going viral.

The department has seen an outpouring of community support after one of its officers was paralyzed in July when he was shot during a routine traffic stop. They've been flooded with cards, food and donations as the community has rallied around them.
