BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. — A group of generous Boynton Beach police officers made the holidays a lot brighter for a struggling family.

The police department said the officers responded to a call to check on the welfare of a family that had fallen on hard times.

After seeing the situation, Officers Goldfuss, Eichorst, and Paciello used their own money to buy Christmas presents for the family's three children.

Boynton Beach police posted video on Facebook showing the officers surprising the family, which brought them to tears.

The police department said the kids were victims of circumstance and they needed smiles put on their faces.
