Wisconsin boy donates savings to local police

Posted: Updated:

A boy donated his savings to Greenfield, Wis., Police Department two days after Sept. 11 and walked out without leaving his name, WTMJ reported.

The boy came up to the counter, pulled a bag of change out of his backpack and put it on the counter saying he wanted to donate his money to the police department. He then walked out, according to the WTMJ story.

Police found and identified the good Samaritan. His name is Max Siepert, 11.

He said he got the idea at his Social Studies class where they talked about 9/11. He has been saving the money, $10.03, since April. He didn't think long about giving the money to the police.

"My grandpa who I never got to meet, he was a police officer and he died at the line of duty," he explained to WTMJ.

"One day, that's going to make a difference," Max added.
