Robinson Ranch Elementary School’s special education teacher, Cynthia Shaffer, started a pumpkin patch for her students during the summer.

She knew they would enjoy taking care of the garden and watching the pumpkins grow. So she hoped the pumpkins would be ready to be picked by the time Halloween rolled around.

Luckily for her, they were ready, but unluckily for the class, they didn’t get the chance to pick them.

One day when they arrived at school, they found the pumpkin patch had been vandalized.

The pumpkins were smashed and the garden was ruined, which left the adults and students absolutely heartbroken.

When you wonder who could do such a thing, to such innocent children, most likely for no reason, you may be mortified. But the situation does have a beautiful silver lining.

The local police in this California town decided to not only investigate the situation to try to find the culprits, but also step in to make these kids happy again.

They all chipped in to make their own pumpkin patch for the group of special needs children, and the smiles on the kids’ faces prove it was a huge success.

The police exist to keep the community safe, but these officers also kept their community happy too.
