BSO PARTNERS WITH FEEDING SOUTH FLORIDA TO LEND A HELPING HAND
PIO Number: 20-3-34 Date: March 27, 2020
The closure of nonessential businesses, due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, has proven difficult for family members in dire need of income to feed themselves and their loved ones. The men and women of Broward Sheriff's Office Neighborhood Support Team (NST) understand this difficulty, which is why they have partnered with Feeding South Florida for Operation Helping Hands.
Through this partnership, roughly 600 prepackaged meals will be provided to families within the community. Each package will consist of a wide variety of food products to help ease the burden of COVID-19. As COVID-19 continues, BSO and Feeding South Florida will continue to support these families on an as needed basis.
BSO’s NST unit has currently identified several senior citizens throughout the districts in need of assistance. Meals will be delivered to these individuals by BSO personnel beginning Thursday, March 26.
It is important we all do our part to help support members of our community. BSO and Feeding South Florida recognizes this importance and will continue to work together to assist the residents of Broward County.
