Bring the Harvest Home

This year the Ocala Police Department is teaming up with Interfaith to feed families within our city/county. The program is called “Bring the Harvest Home” and was developed in the later part of 2011. The program was developed due to pantry levels becoming extremely low. The goal of the program is to have Government Agencies, Business, Churches and citizens donate food or money during a week of their choice. This donation would ensure the pantry levels will be fully stocked for 52 weeks/1 year. “Bring the Harvest Home” will not only help feed families in 2012 but will continue to supply food year after year.

The Ocala Police Department representative is Detective Anthony Vizzini and he will be responsible for coordinating the Police Department’s food drive which will start July 22, 2012 and end on July 28, 2012. During this week there will be food collection bins located at the Main Office, 402 South Pine Avenue, the District I Office located at 2400 West Silver Springs Blvd., and the District II Office located at 36 SE 15 Terr.

The Ocala Police Department is proud to participate in this great community event and will be placing food collection bins in our lobby so that anyone that wants to help can come to the Police Department and donate food or hygiene items. We our encouraging our employees and community to donate what you can so that those less fortunate will be taken care of throughout the upcoming year. We would like to thank everyone in advance for your support.

Anyone that needs information is encouraged to call Detective Anthony Vizzini at 352-427-7815 or you can email him at avizzini32@gamil.com.
