SEVENTH ANNUAL CHRISTMAS FOOD DRIVE
The Polk County Sheriff’s Office held its seventh annual Christmas Food Drive Dec. 20 in which deputies and volunteer citizens passed out full Christmas meals to 61 families who may otherwise have not had a meal this year. Every year since its inception, deputies of the Polk County Sheriff’s Office have personally provided the funds to purchase the turkeys and hams for the meals. This year, Georgia Pacific Corrigan Mill provided 34 meals to go with the turkeys and hams. Over 27 additional meals were able to be purchased due to the kindness and generosity of both Livingston Walmart Store Manager Johnathan Montalvo and Livingston HEB Store Manager Dustin Young, along with additional funds raised by deputies. Without these donations from both stores and deputies, the sheriff’s office would not have been able to complete this year’s Christmas Food Drive. Additionally, several students from Onalaska High School assisted the deputies in packing the meals and distributing them to the families. Courtesy photo
