“Thank you for your service,” William S. Hernandez wrote in a card that was delivered to the Hollywood Police Department on Monday. “From my piggy bank to you.”

There was no return address.

“We’re hoping we can track him down, it was such a sweet sweet gesture,” Deanna Bettineschi, a spokesperson for the Hollywood Police Department, told WTVJ-TV. “Especially during the holidays, it was just like, ‘Oh, gosh, what can we do?’

“He said ‘from my piggy bank to you!’ So we were like, ‘What a sweet gesture,’ all of us were smiling. It was really sweet but it didn’t have a return address.”

The department posted the card on social media, hoping to find the boy, WTVJ reported.

“If you know who this may be, please send us a private message,” the department wrote on Facebook. “His piggy bank money will go toward our Explorer program.”
