Holliston police tweeted a photo of a 6-year-old boy, identified only as Jackson, stopping by the department to pass out dozens of survival kits for the officers.

Inside the kits was candy and a note from the heart:

Lifesaver -- to remind you of the many times you've been one
Starburst -- for the burst of energy that you need
Payday -- since you're not doing it for the money
Hershey Kisses -- to show our love for you
Gum -- to help everyone stick together
Tootsie Roll -- you have to roll with the punches
Peppermint Patty -- helping you keep your cool
Snickers -- to help keep your humor
Mounds -- for the mounds of courage you show

The boy wore a proud smile as he posed for the picture at the station.

The police department was appreciative of the gesture, saying: "The world needs more Jacksons!"
