‘Beds for Kids’ – Seattle Police Officers Go Above and Beyond the Call of Duty

Last night, a child slept on a floor, wrapped in an old blanket, trying to stay warm against a threadbare carpet. Tonight, thanks to two Seattle police officers, Ryan Gallagher and Jeremy Wade, the child will be sleeping in a soft bed, perhaps the first bed they could call their own in their young lives. And so will hundreds of other children if the pair of cops get their way.

In 2013, officers Gallagher and Wade responded to a 911 disturbance call. During their investigation, they saw two little girls sleeping on the floor. They were living with their grandparents and had no beds. Struck by the scene of these kids sleeping on the floor, the officers went out, bought beds for the children, came back, and set them up.
