BUTLER (KDKA) -- A good deed at a Sheetz by a Pennsylvania State Trooper was paid forward by a little girl.

When 9-year-old Brooke didn't have enough money to pay for her donut holes at the local Sheetz, Pennsylvania State Trooper Chad Savannah paid for her treat.

Savannah says Brooke rushed right out of the Sheetz after that. That was when she went home and wrote a letter to Savannah, which read, "My name is Brooke and I am 9 years old. I was at Sheetz and didn't have enough money. A nice police officer behind me kindly paid for my item. I thanked him, but felt bad because I didn't offer him the money I had. So, I am donating this money. I want to thank this officer again. Stay safe. Brooke."

It continued from there. Troopers collected $50 and delivered a Toys R Us gift card and a special letter to Brooke at her home. They told her to buy toys for herself.

Brooke took the gift card and used it to donate $50 worth of toys to Toys For Tots.
