TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL)--A Leon County deputy is lighting up the lives of homeless people this holiday season.

To a group of homeless people in Leon County, deputy Rachel Keller is an angel.

Her patrol car is loaded up with all sorts of items including blankets, socks, and tarps to keep them dry.

Keller says their struggle became all too real a couple months back.

“I encountered a homeless man who was wearing a Hawaiian shirt and shorts who was obviously cold,” said Keller. “I was shivering in uniform and it kind of hit hard. It sat on me and so I realized there was a need among the homeless population and I basically took it upon myself to find blankets and jackets and I walked into the transient camps in the area I work and said here you go.”

From there her efforts were noticed and she says local police and fire departments and the community started pitching in, all to help meet a need this holiday season.

To find out how to donate, email Rachel Keller at kellerr@leoncountyfl.gov.
