It wasn't the latest iPhone, or new shoes, one Auburn High School student wanted this Christmas. It was a backpack.
Well, thanks to one kind Rockford officer, that student got her wish.
She had told her Alderman she didn't have one, and was missing school work because she couldn't carry all of her class materials.
He messaged an officer, and the next day, five backpacks were delivered to Auburn High School by Officer Thurmond.
Alderman Logeman says its another way for kids in the area to see officers doing something good.
