Dearborn Heights Police Officers participate in 2-weekend Forgotten Harvest/Kroger food drive


Dearborn Heights, MI – Thanks to the work of Dearborn Heights Police Officers and volunteers, coupled with the generosity of the Dearborn Heights Kroger store and many residents who contributed hundreds of pounds of non-perishable foods, Forgotten Harvest was the grateful recipient of a host of food products that will be shared with neighbors in need.

 

The Dearborn Heights Police Department was an active participant in the recent Kroger First Responder Food Drive, which saw nearly 30 stores located throughout Southeast Michigan team up with local First Responder agencies to collect food for 2 consecutive Saturdays, July 31 and August 7.

 

 

“We are really proud of our officers and volunteers, and grateful to the folks from the Dearborn Heights Kroger store, Forgotten Harvest and Jaret El Amar for their help – and especially for so many individuals who dropped off food for this great cause” DHPD Chief



Jerrod Hart explained. “A lot of families in need will be the beneficiaries of the hard work that went into this drive – it was a great community effort!”

 

 

Over the 2 Saturdays, nearly 8 large (watermelon-style) containers, representing several hundred pounds of non-perishable foods were filled and transported to Forgotten Harvest.
