Trooper Provides for Family in the Spirit of Christmas

On Christmas December 25th an Indiana State Police Trooper spread Christmas cheer to a single working mother of three in northern Vigo County. Trooper Nicole Cheeks, a one-year veteran of the ISP and assigned to the Putnamville Post, followed her heart and delivered Christmas Joy to the Diekoff family on Rosehill Avenue. Utilizing her own money, Cheeks purchased a few toys, including some with the new Star Wars theme, board games, clothing, food items, and personal care products to the three children, Brandon age 8, Hailee age 11, and Lexis age 15.

Considerable thought went into this project as Cheeks felt a strong desire to help. Armed with her own money and personal time, Cheeks purchased the items and anxiously waited for Christmas Day. Just after noon on Christmas, again on her own time, Cheeks drove to the Diekoff residence and surprised the children.
