santa 12 24OWENSBORO, Ky. (12/17/19) — Owensboro Police Department is wrapping up its 7th Annual Operation Santa food drive.

OPD reported officers have teamed up with Elizabeth Munday Center to collect food for those regularly served by Meals on Wheels.

Police plan to deliver more than 300 food boxes around the community from funds raised during OPD’s “No Shave” endeavor. Officers also reported receiving support from local businesses and organizations including area grocers, health facilities, stores, Owensboro Public and Catholic schools and Owensboro City Hall workers.

Department members will gather with their families at the OPD Community Room 9 a.m. Monday to assemble all of the goods.

“Once assembled, the boxes will be transferred to our makeshift sleighs — police cruisers,” OPD wrote.
