Today, the City’s Crossing Guard Division announced that their first annual holiday food drive resulted in over 2,300 pounds of donations.

“No child should have to go hungry during the holidays,” said Crossing Guard Supervisor Richard Deichsel. “We see these kids every day, so it was very important to us to give back to our communities.”

The Crossing Guard Division held the one-week food drive at over forty schools around the city, and accepted any non-perishable food items.

“The Crossing Guard Division is a group that never gets enough credit for the work they do,” said General Services Director John Craig. “This is just another testament to the wonderful commitment the City Crossing Guard has to serving our community.”

The food drive was so successful that, not only will the Crossing Guard Division conduct a second annual holiday food drive next winter, but they’re also considering other opportunities throughout the year to conduct additional drives.
