This week I want to send my heartfelt thanks and gratitude to everyone who graciously donated non-perishable food items, money, their time, and resources in making this event such a tremendous success. Thank you to the stores who let us hold the event at their locations, and thank you to all the law enforcement agencies and volunteers who participated.
We can’t know the number of items collected, the number of pounds donated, or the number of hungry people that will be fed, but what we do know is how big the hearts of citizens throughout Eaton County are.
Yours in Public Safety,
Sheriff Tom Reich
