PATTERSON - A family received a generous gift from an official as he responded to a call for service Thursday night.
Deputy Barron was handling a call for service when he realized the family he was talking to did not have any mattresses in their home.
With a little muscle power from his partners, Deputy Barron purchased mattresses for the woman and her three children and delivered them to her home. He also bought the kids Christmas presents.
"We are proud of the work our deputies do in the community every day," the Stanislaus County Sheriff's Office said on their Facebook page.
