York PD gives woman suffering from chronic kidney disease new A.C. unit

- "I told God what I needed. That's all I could do," said Roxanne Jett, a 63-year-old woman who lives in York.

And He was listening.

"I heard a knock at the door and the first thing I said is 'what have I done' because I’m not used to police knocking on my door."

Turns out a little angel had whispered in Sergeant Dale Edwards’ ear.

"I’ve got a great community. I really do. Any time I really need something or somebody genuinely need something. They jump in quick," said Sgt. Edwards with York Police Department.

Roxanne Jett was in need of an A.C. unit. She's on a fixed income, and has stage four chronic kidney disease.

"Right before I had my kidney cancer surgery in March, my heating and conditioning unit went out. I thought the other day I need to get my bathing suit on and run around outside,” said Jett.

She never got the chance. York PD - with help from a Lowe’s employee and Evan’s Automotive - gave her a brand new A.C. unit.

"All I could do was throw my hands up and praise the lord and thank him for answering my prayers," said Jett.

You never know who will be your angel.

"We do the small things we can do with what we've got and help people. Be the angels we need to be and bring the whole community up to a higher level. Makes it a better place to live," said Edwards.

"I love them to death. I hope they remember that," said Jett.
