Robert Wood and his family were moving from Alaska to Eugene to begin a new life. They had traveled by car stopped in a park where they planned to sleep in their car because they had not found housing yet and wanted to save a bit of money.
That’s when Eugene Police Lt. David Natt spotted their car and Robert, his pregnant wife Heather, 4-year-old Samuel, and 2-year-old Logan.
Instead of writing them a ticket, he offered the family two nights at a hotel on him! The officer’s act of kindness allowed the family enough time to find temporary housing with a friend while they looked for a permanent home.
Robert was so moved by the officer’s generosity that he shared the story with family and friends on Facebook and it went viral.
