The Hutchinson community is going above and beyond to help one of its citizens.

Last week, we told you about how Morgan Gibson and Nick Longhofer helped officers get a man home after his electric wheelchair miles away from home.

Well, Wednesday afternoon Gibson, Longhofer, members of the Hutchinson Police Department gifted the man with a brand new electric scooter.

"We know that with winter coming up, it's going to get cold, and we wanted you to have something reliable. So, that way you don't get stuck out in the cold if your battery loses charge," said Sgt. Black with HPD.

The scooter was paid for with help from Health Equip, The Supplement Stop and other community members.

"Thanks and praise to all who helped make this happen," said Hutch PD on Facebook, "Anything is possible when the community comes together to help those in need!"
