A news tip called into KATU-TV in Portland, Oregon brought to light a story of kindness and generosity by a local police officer.
Officer Carlos Ibarra says he deals with a lot of homeless people who could use help, but usually it is just a husband and wife and a kid or two at the most. This dad and seven kids were living in a van.
When none of the local shelters answered their phones on the weekend, he put them up in a hotel and paid the $70 fee from his own pocket. He went and got them a box of food too.
