Deputies Help Fill Pantries At Ronald McDonald House 

Thanks to the community oriented Deputies with the Galveston County Sheriff’s Office the pantries at the Ronald McDonald house are full. As with many in Galveston the Ronald McDonald House was heavily damaged by Hurricane Ike and all of their supplies were lost.

Deputy Minnis Hunt with the Corrections Division developed a plan to help collect items for the Ronald McDonald House and it was approved by Sheriff Poor. The rest is history. A wish list was generated by the Ronald McDonald House and this was sent out to all of the Sheriff’s Office Staff, other departments within county government and the Citizen Sheriff’s Academy Alumni Association.

The collection was to take place at the Sheriff’s Office Holiday Party. The response was overwhelming. Not only did the employees participate, but many of the inmates in the County Jail also gave of their commissary to help as well as many local businesses.

At the end of the day the items collected completely filled a large enclosed trailer. The Deputies also obtained a substantial amount of cash donations and purchased additional cleaning items. The following day all of the items collected as well as a donated pallet of bottled water were delivered to the Ronald McDonald House.
