PUNTA GORDA — They filled an entire table to the point it swayed in the middle. It took a total of 13 boxes to hold them, and the boxes filled the bed of a pickup truck. They were food items collected from members of the Sheriff’s Office for the local Salvation Army’s food pantry. On Monday, Captain Josue Prieto of the local Salvation Army accepted the donation of boxes of canned and packaged food items. He said the food would definitely go to good use during the upcoming holiday season.
Chief Dan Libby was on hand to present the collection to Prieto. He credited the work of Sheriff’s Administrative Aide Karen Cline and Human Resources Specialist Heather Lupinetti with spearheading this year’s food drive. The Sheriff’s Office has held a food drive for the Salvation Army for the past several years. After the presentation, Libby and other members of the Sheriff’s Office command staff helped unload the items from the table into a total of 13 boxes and pack them into Prieto’s truck.
