From the official Mariposa County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page:
Meet our friend Lucca!!!!
Most days when Lucca goes to school he gets bullied. He gets bullied because “he is different” (what ever that means).
Going to school each day knowing & preparing to be bullied is exhausting and takes a serious toll on Lucca. Lucca told his mom about what was going on at school.
His mom reached out to Deputy Rudy Mirelez asking him what she should do. Deputy Mirelez decided he wanted to show all the kids at school how special Lucca is.
Deputy Mirelez had a football signed by all the Sheriffs Office Deputies, CAL FIRE and Mariposa County Fire Firefighters and JC Fremont Hospital staff. He wanted to show Lucca he is loved and supported by so many people in Mariposa County.
Today Deputy Mirelez, Deputy Lunquist and Dispatcher Slenders delivered the football to Lucca’s school today.
Deputy Mirelez had cookies for the entire class as a way to celebrate Lucca.
Be Kind! It doesn’t cost anything to be nice.
