Badges for Backpacks 2017

May 6th was the annual Craighead County Sheriff’s Office Badges for Backpacks Food Drive held at Kroger on Caraway Rd. Sheriff Boyd and many of the deputies with the Craighead County Sheriff’s Office spent the afternoon receiving food and monetary donations from the public, all the while doing what Sheriff Boyd loves best, which is getting to interact with the kids. This year’s event allowed the Northeast Arkansas Food Bank to provide 8,349 meals to local deserving kids. Donations by generous and caring residents of Craighead County is what makes this possible, and the Sheriff’s Office looks forward to this event every year. There were 2,963 pounds of food donated, which equals 2,469 meals, and $1,470 to purchase 5,880 meals.

Thank you to everyone who donated, and thank you to The Northeast Arkansas Food Bank for being such good stewards with the donations. You can stretch a dollar to the maximum efficiency, and you make sure the most amount of people are helped in the process. We would also like to thank Kroger for allowing us to stage in their foyer to accept donations. Kroger has been a great partner to the Food Bank and Craighead County Sheriff’s Office and we look forward to fostering that relationship with future events. If you would like more information on how you can help with this and other programs NEA Food Bank sponsors, visit their website at NEA Food Bank.
