During the months of February and March, the Bend Walmart Supercenter donated over 20 pallets of brand new unsold merchandise to the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office for distribution to local community organizations. 

The over $20,000 worth of donated boxes of product included shoes, clothing, hats, gloves, puzzles, games, and toys.  The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office disbursed the boxes of items to over 25 not-for-profit organizations that help less fortunate citizens in the Deschutes County area.

Community organizations who received items:

 

“The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office was proud to provide an outreach program to over 25 local organizations of merchandise donated from Walmart.  We were able to provide items to hundreds of families throughout Deschutes County.  Community Programs are a very important part of our mission at the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office.”                                                   Sheriff Larry Blanton, Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office

 

 

 

 

Jericho Road wishes to thank the Deschutes County Sheriff's Office for their continued support and encouragement. Their generosity has yet again been shared with the children of our area through the donation of clothes, shoes, hats and gloves.

 

Since Jericho Road is directly involved with supporting children of all ages with hot meals, weekend food bags and supplies, these items will be especially appreciated. Thank you again, Deschutes County Sheriff's Office. Your caring and sharing shows a depth of compassion and professionalism that should serve as an example to others.”                                                                                                                                               Don Senecal, Jericho Road
