WALTON COUNTY, Fla. — A young Florida boy decided to spread holiday cheer by inviting local deputies to eat with him and his family on Thanksgiving.

“A little boy melted all the hearts in Walton County Sheriff’s Office Communication Center today,” said Walton County Sheriff Michael A. Adkinson in a Facebook post.

The boy, identified as only Billy, called 911 to invite deputies to eat dinner with his family as a way to say thank you.

“With all the bad calls we take on a daily basis this one was a welcomed happy call that made all of us smile,” said lead communications officer Monica Webster.

Two deputies stopped by his house Thursday to deliver a sheriff’s badge to Billy. They also took pictures with him.

“While we do not encourage this use of 911… we are so honored at the invitation,” the post concluded.

Here’s a look at the post in its entirety:
