There was hardly any food in the house.
The children's mother told Milton that she did not work because she could not afford day care for the smaller children. She said her husband works in and out of town but does not make much money.
Instantly, Milton knew he desperately wanted to help this family.
Milton contacted DFACS to find out if a social worker could help the family with their living situation, then bought four pizzas and two large beverages for the family, paying for the food himself and delivering it.

The Atlanta Police Department said Milton's actions showed that not only does he enforce the law, he goes the extra mile to be a bigger part of the community that he is policing.
Milton said he is overwhelmed by the amount of support he's received since the story got out. Hundreds of people have shared his story and have asked to help the family.
"Thank you everyone," Milton said. "I really, really appreciate all the kind words. From the bottom of my heart, thank you all."
If anyone would like to help the family, Milton said that he will be posting clothing sizes for the children on the Atlanta Police Department Facebook page as soon as he's able to gather the information.
When the department receives the sizes, those wanting to help can drop them off at the Zone 1 precinct located at 2315 Donald Lee Hollowell Parkway NW, Atlanta, GA 30318. Donations will be accepted from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday - Friday.
