STATE POLICE MAKES DONATION TO ARKANSAS FOOD BANK

July 28, 2015

   Arkansas State Troopers and the department’s civilian employees have received a letter of thanks from the Arkansas Food Bank following the successful donation of 964 pounds of non-perishable food which will be shared with less fortunate Arkansans.

    The food donations amounted to approximately 2,500 assorted items collected over a six-week period beginning in May this year.  On July 10th the donations were loaded onto an Arkansas Food Bank truck for distribution to 290 food pantries set-up in Arkansas to help disadvantaged individuals and families.

   Estimates from the Arkansas Food Bank indicate enough food was collected by Arkansas State Police employees to produce 803 meals.

   The Food Bank staff has extended their appreciation to Lakesha Smith for her tireless effort in coordinating the State Police food drive.
