Florida Highway Patrol
Stuff the Charger Food Drive
Florida’s families are the focus as the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles and the Florida Highway Patrol announces its inaugural “Stuff the Charger” Thanksgiving food drive. In partnership with food banks across the State of Florida, FHP is collecting food donations for Florida’s families! So, starting Oct. 26 through Nov. 6, we will be collecting non-perishable items.
FHP’s plan is to get as much food as possible, stuff into a charger and deliver it to the food banks throughout the state. The target food delivery date is November 7, 2015 so the donations will arrive in time for Thanksgiving.
The Florida Highway Patrol will be accepting non-perishable food donations at each troop headquarters across the state to include General Headquarters in Tallahassee.
The following items are needed for Thanksgiving:
|Canned Goods: canned meats (ham, chicken, tuna), canned sweet potatoes, carrots, corn, green beans, canned fruits||Dried Goods: stuffing, boxed potatoes, rice, cornbread mix, grits & oatmeal||Other Goods: Nuts, evaporated milk, broth|
You can bring your contributions to any local FHP Station or contact a Public Affairs Officer in your area for more information.
COME ON FLORIDA!
