A Simple Mix Up Makes One Boy's Dream Come True
Today is Make Your Dreams Come True Day! Anything is possible; especially with the help of loving neighbors. One young boy's dream to go hunting would soon come true - and it was all due to a simple mix up and the help of some amazing people. Sheriff Alex Underwood posted on the Chester County Sheriff Department's Facebook page that he wanted to take a group of kids hunting. When young boy Alex Collins saw it he got so excited and jumped at the chance. He wrote a handwritten, heartfelt letter explaining, “It’s just me and my Mom and she’s too sick to do stuff… She has a bad heart. I think you are really nice to do this. I hope you pick me to go.”
However, the offer was in Chester County, South Carolina — not Chester County, Pennsylvania where the boy lived. But word soon got to Sheriff Underwood and Alex's local sheriff department. Some wonderful neighbors stepped in and got Alex to Chester County, Pennsylvania for an awesome 2 day trip. Sheriff Underwood was overjoyed to have him and spent hundreds of dollars of his own money on hunting gear for his new little friend. With the help of some kind people, Alex's dreams came true and he finally went hunting.
