A man taped eight quarters to an index card and sent it, along with a $1 dollar bill, across the country to a police officer in Oregon with a note thanking him for a good deed.

The letter arrived at the Eugene Police Department on Dec. 26.

The man told Lt. David Natt that he saw a post on Facebook about what Natt had done months earlier.

In February 2015, Natt came upon a homeless U.S. Marine and his family sleeping at Alton Baker Park. Natt was able to provide them a hotel room for a couple of nights using a Eugene Police Department fund that was set up by University Fellowship Church.

The man who sent the letter to Natt said he recently lost his job and was experiencing health issues, but while he was limited in what he could send, he still wanted to show his appreciation.

So he sent $3 with a handwritten note saying, "this helps to remind me of my humanity, as well as the needs of others.”  

The man's money will be put back into the department's fellowship fund, "so his generosity can be paid forward," according to Eugene police.
