Sheriff’s Office Applauds Two Young Boys Who Spent Their Snow Day Shoveling Sidewalks and Streets

We love being able to report stories of people doing good in our local communities, and this one has more than just merit.

Authorities with an Ohio sheriff’s office are applauding two young boys who spent their snow day shoveling sidewalks and streets.

Officials with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office posted photos of the young boys — J’mar Blanton, 7, and Quron Blanton, 10 — shoveling sidewalks and streets Friday morning in their Dayton neighborhood.

When authorities asked them what they were doing, J’mar responded, “We’re just trying to make the world a safer place.”

“We can certainly do a lot of learning from both J’mar and Quron and thank them for taking care of their community…on their day OFF from school,” officials with the sheriff’s office wrote.

“So of course, we wanted to make sure we treated them to some hot chocolate and snacks as a small thank you. Keep up the great work and keep inspiring others, J’mar and Quron!”

Below is the full statement from the Sheriff’s Office Facebook Page.

This morning, Detective Statzer was stopped by J’mar Blanton (7 yrs old) and Quron Blanton (10 yrs old) in Dayton. Detective Statzer noticed both children were shoveling not only the sidewalk, but parts of the street as well.

When he asked them what they were doing, J’mar stated they “were just trying to make the world a safer place” by shoveling the snow in the streets and sidewalks around their neighborhood.

We can certainly do a lot of learning from both J’mar and Quron and thank them for taking care of their community…on their day OFF from school! So of course, we wanted to make sure we treated them to some hot chocolate and snacks as a small thank you. Keep up the great work and keep inspiring others, J’mar and Quron!!

Well done young men, America is proud of you! We need more just like you!
