A fourth grader in Tyler, Texas has made 200 thank you cards and delivered them after Christmas to law enforcement officers around Smith County.

Savannah Solis, who attached candy bars to each card, said she just wanted them to know she was “thankful for what they do every day.”

Inside the note reads, “Dear police officer, My name is Savannah Solis, and I am 10-years-old. I just want to say thank you for taking care of us every day. You are my hero. I’m so glad we have you. You’re so brave, too. I pray that God will protect you. Please keep watching out for us, Love Savannah.”

She has been hand delivering the cards so she can meet the officers in person, and collecting autographs. She said she was also sending notes of gratitude to the New York City Police Department.

Whitehouse, TX Police Chief Craig Shelton told the Tyler Morning Telegraph, “It really touched me. When I was reading the card, she was sitting across from me with a beautiful little smile on her face; it choked me up.”
