By West Kentucky Star Staff
GRAVES COUNTY - The Graves County Sheriff's Office's Cram the Cruiser event was a huge success.

During the month of November, deputies collected 1,320 toys, clothes and school supplies to be sent to local family resource centers. Most of the items will go to the Community Christmas Connection to help families who are in need of a helping hand, and provide a brighter Christmas for their children.

Deputies also collected 357 items to go to the Lighthouse Women's and Children's Shelter. These items include cleaning products, paper products, snacks and toiletry items. Finally, deputies collected 1,755 food items that will be used in the local food pantry to help feed those who are hungry this Christmas.

"We cannot thank the people of Graves County enough for their generosity with this program,” Graves County Sheriff's Office Captain Jeremy Prince said. “All we did was supply the cruiser. The citizens of Graves County did such an awesome job of showing how much they care for their neighbors that are in need."

Captain Prince thanked the Dollar General stores in Graves County for their help and support with this program as well as the employees of the sheriff's office who helped with the program over the last month. He also like thanked his wife, Jaime, and his daughter, Olivia, for all of their help with sorting and counting all of the items.
