An elderly cancer patient, unable to leave his home to get food and without any living relatives, called 911 in desperation. ABC 11 Eyewitness News reports that a dispatcher not only took the call, but "arrived at his front door with police carrying bags full of food and made him some ham sandwiches."
"He was hungry," Ms Hinson said. "I've been hungry. A lot of people can't say that, but I can, and I cannot stand to see anyone go hungry."
Mr Blackmon described Ms Hinson as "amazing", adding: "Us little people need a helping hand every once in a while. Most of the time, we get overlooked. We're still here."
ABC News posted video of 83-year-old Fayetteville veteran Clarence Blackmon enjoying a ham sandwich.
