Beach Clubber, Dakota Glidewell, is a hometown hero. On Friday, August 2, 2013 at approximately 12:45pm, Dakota went outside his home in Coppell, Texas and noticed smoke coming from his next-door neighbor’s house. He immediately went back inside and alerted his family and the Glidewells called 911. The family lost many belongings, but all family members, including their pets, were not harmed. Thankfully Dakota noticed the fire and acted quickly before it could have turned deadly.
Dakota also exhibited outstanding character and generosity by handing the homeowner $72, all the money he had. When asked why he gave the money he said it was because he wanted to. The homeowner commented, “This little eight year old kid gave me all the money he had because he realized that we were in need. That touched my heart because that kind of kindness is not something seen too often, even amongst adults.”
Dakota attends KiDs Beach Club at Wilson Elementary, sponsored by Coppell Bible Fellowship.
