A group of New Jersey police officers pitched in to buy a miniature motorized police cruiser for a 5-year-old boy who used his allowance to buy them lunch last week.

William Evertz Jr. made headlines after he used his allowance money to purchase Subway sandwiches for the Winslow Township Police Department, declaring it “Happy Kindness Day.” He had originally been saving up the money to buy a Power Wheels police car, Philly.com reported.

On Tuesday, an entourage of Winslow Township police vehicles arrived in William’s Sicklerville neighborhood with lights and sirens blaring.

“As a thank you for lunch and being such a great kid, Winslow Twp Police officers bought and delivered William Evertz Jr. ‘Bubba’ his personalized Winslow Twp Police car today,” the department wrote in a Facebook post.

The battery-operated car even had authentic police department car decals, which were donated, the post said. A license plate on the car read “Bubba,” the boy’s nickname.

Video posted by the department showed the moment police officers presented William with the customized Power Wheels car.

“He was definitely in shock. He was over-the-moon excited,” his mother, Tara, told Philly.com. “They really delivered an entourage to make him feel very special.”

William, who wants to be a police officer, also used his allowance to donate toys and school supplies to a Philadelphia domestic-violence shelter and food and toys to a Blackwood animal shelter, Philly.com reported.

“If his story touches one person to do something nice for someone else, that’s what it’s all about,” his mother said. “It’s about a little boy who wanted to do something nice.”
