Today is the last day for you to get a chance to be Sheriff for a Day by helping Pack a Patrol car with canned food for local food pantries.

The sheriff’s department will be taking food donations until 5 today for the contest. The person who donates the most food will get to shadow Bartholomew County Sheriff Matt Myers for a day including touring the jail, meeting the staff, attending meetings and following the sheriff on his other duties.

All items donated to the sheriff’s department through 5 p.m. today will be tracked for the contest and every $1 donation will count as two canned food items. You can drop off items in the lobby at the sheriff’s department on Second Street.

The sheriff’s department will be taking donations for the Pack-A-Patrol car efforts through tomorrow.

Donated items will be delivered to Love Chapel and the Salvation Army.
