The LAPD Newton division raised money over GoFundMe after 10-year-old Geovanni Ramirez, who suffers from cerebral palsy, lost his leg-braces to thieves.
The thieves stole the braces right out of his mother’s car.
“Who better to serve than the most vulnerable in our society,” LAPD’s Michael Ventura asked. “That’s why we went above and beyond.”
The department was able to raise more than $13,000 for Geovanni’s family, and presented his mother with a check on Wednesday.
