Join CCSO In 'Stuff The Cuffs' Holiday Food Drive

The Collier County Sheriff’s Office invites the community to participate in its “Stuff The Cuffs” holiday food drive benefiting the Harry Chapin Food Bank of Southwest Florida.

The drive takes place through Dec. 3.

Participants may place their donations into receptacles adorned with an oversized pair of mock handcuffs. Canned and other nonperishable food items are being accepted.

Community members may drop off their donations in the main lobby of the CCSO administration building, 3319 U.S. 41 E., East Naples. Agency members will find receptacles at the Naples Jail Center, the second-floor break room in the administration building and at the agency’s facility at 2373 Horseshoe Drive, Naples.

The Harry Chapin Food Bank serves more than 30,000 individuals each month. In fiscal 2013-2014 it distributed 18.7 million pounds of food, provided 15.5 million meals, and turned every $1 into $6 worth of food for those in need.
