Deadline nears to pack patrol car for food drive

By Bartholomew County Sheriff's Department-

Press release

This is the final week for the Bartholomew County Sheriff Department's Pack-a-Patrol Car Food Drive.

It began Oct. 10 at the Ethnic Expo parade and runs through this Friday, Nov. 20, 2015.

Sheriff Matt Myers has asked Bartholomew County residents and businesses to "Pack-a-Patrol Car" with non-perishable food items in his efforts to help feed less fortunate families in Bartholomew County.

Containers will remain in the lobby of the Sheriff's Office, 543 Second Street, for the public to drop off canned food and other non-perishable items through Friday night. Items may also be dropped off at the Hope Police Department.

Non-perishable food items include canned foods, boxed pasta, peanut butter and cereal.

After November 20, Deputies will "pack" a Sheriff's patrol car with the donated food items and deliver them to Love Chapel's Food Pantry located at 311 Center Street, Columbus. Love Chapel is an Outreach program of the Ecumenical Assembly of Bartholomew County churches.

"If people have a large number of items, call us and we will be happy to pick them up", said Sheriff Myers.[[In-content Ad]]
