Augusta Police Throw Birthday Party For 8-Year-Old Girl

AUGUSTA, Maine - A Maine police department has thrown their own celebration for an 8-year-old girl who had no one show up to her birthday party.
WCSH-TV reports the Augusta Police Department put on a party Sunday for Larriah Binns in Augusta complete with balloons and birthday cake.
Larriah's mother, Angelique Binns, says she had a birthday celebration planned for Saturday, but none of her daughter's friends could come.
Angelique Binns says her daughter started jumping up and down in excitement Sunday when she saw several cars pulling up in front of their home.
The girl received a birthday card signed by the entire police department, as well as several gift cards.
