This is what I found on PEOPLE.COM:

A trio of New York police officers is already getting into the giving spirit this holiday season.

The three cops, who are all members of the Albany Police Department, were recognized by the department after they got to work on Monday, shoveling the property of an elderly woman unable to do herself.

The 99-year-old woman lives alone and called the Albany Police Center Station to ask for help in clearing snow from her driveway. New York’s capital city was blanketed with 12-18 inches of snow Sunday night into Monday morning as part of a wintry storm, according to AccuWeather.

The Albany Police Department gave additional details in a Facebook post. They wrote:

When Duty Calls

This morning, the #Albany Police Center Station received a phone call from a 99-year-old resident who lives alone and asked for our assistance with clearing snow from her driveway.

Without hesitation, Police Officers William Pierce, Christopher Stiles and John Schueler all drove to the woman’s home to assist her and worked together to clear more than a foot of snow from her sidewalk and driveway.
