Sheena Davenport was having a rough time making ends meet, and one day last year, she made a decision that would cause her a lot of problems down the road. When they were at the end of their rope, she made the decision to try and shoplift, intending to steal food from their local Walmart. She was caught and had to face the consequences. One year later, she was finishing up her paperwork for the courts when this officer told her to wait.The officer told her to get into her car and follow her. Sheena had no idea what to expect, but the officer was kind, and when they pulled into the Winn Dixie parking lot, she couldn’t believe what was happening.
Officer Katrina Dothan spent $139 of her own money on groceries for the family. Sheena told the officer that she didn’t have to do it, but the woman wouldn’t take ‘no’ for an answer.
Dothan knew exactly what it felt like to be in that position – she had struggled herself – but even though the world makes living harder on some, it was up to the rest of society to help out and make a difference.
Sheena decided to share her story as inspiration to others, and to promise that when she gets back on her feet, she will pay it forward for someone else in need.
