Groveport Police Sgt. Casey Adams places donated food items in boxes as part of the police department’s Cram the Cruiser food drive held in the Groveport Kroger parking lot on Sept. 14. The collected food, as well as $434 in monetary donations, will be given to the Groveport Food Pantry. “I want to thank everyone for their support and donations to this year’s ‘Cram the Cruiser’ food drive,” said Adams. “When Captain Blevins proposed this food drive, it was my hope and goal to collect eight large boxes of food items. The goal was met and exceeded for a grand total of 25 large boxes of canned food, boxed food, cleaning supplies, bottled water and pet food.” People who donated also signed a law enforcement blue line flag that will be donated to Groveport City Council for display in its council chambers.
Groveport Police Chief Ralph Portier takes some donated items to the food collection boxes. “The generosity of this community is tremendous,” said Portier. Groveport Police Sgt. Casey Adams is in the background near the police cruiser.
