Child Uses His Birthday to Benefit the Children of a Fallen Officer

Carson Atkins requested that all the money and presents he would receive at his ninth birthday party would go towards the children of Hattiesburg Police officer, Benjamin Deen.

Carson’s mother, April, said that her son was able to collect almost $1000 for the family of the fallen officer. She was beaming with pride, saying her son has always been generous and special.

April also said her son is fascinated with law enforcement and the military. Fortunately, the Lamar County Sheriff’s Department was informed of her son’s deed. She said they told her they would do something special for him.

Sam Tabar told us that members of LCSO crashed Carson’s birthday party, surprising him and his friends, gifting him old badges and medals as a way to thank the young boy for his incredible generosity.

Benjamin Deen’s brother, Josh, also thoroughly shocked Carson with the fallen officer’s old collection of baseball cards.
