HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) - Police in Hutchinson are handing out $100 bills to the needy thanks to an anonymous donor.

Hutchinson Police Capt. Troy Hoover says the donor asked police to provide random acts of kindness to people in need. The Hutchinson News (https://bit.ly/1Qvk3T8) reports that police don’t even know the identity of the donor. The Fraternal Order of Police has matched the donation.

So far police have distributed $1,400. Hoover says police will give another $1,600 before it is done.

Hoover says the recipients include single mothers working multiple jobs, military veterans in difficult financial circumstances and people caring for terminally ill family members.
