GOODRICH, TEXAS (KTRE) - Firefighters in Goodrich, Texas were gifted with surprise Friday in the form a fire truck.

On Friday, the department posted a message to social media discussing the gift from the Needham Fire Department.

A few weeks ago, Needham firefighters showed up with gently used equipment for the Goodrich Volunteer Fire Department squad with promises to return to attend a barbecue fundraiser on the Fourth of July.

“True to their word they showed up today and I for the first time ever am at a loss for words...They gifted our department this FIRE TRUCK!!!” Goodrich VFD wrote in the post. “Folks ‘‘this is a blessing from them and God!”

The gesture was so unexpected it moved Chief Kenneth Hambrick to tears.

The department shared photos of the new truck on social media.
