Roscommon County Sheriff’s Department Donates Food and Presents

This holiday season, a local sheriff's department decided to go the extra mile.

The Roscommon County Sheriff's Department is donating food and gifts to those in need.

For nearly a decade, the sheriff's department has adopted a family.

But this year they wanted to do more.

So on top of buying gifts for a family of 5, they're helping out some local seniors and veterans.

And they filled tubs of food to hand out tomorrow.

Deputy Paul Roth says, “We have pretty solid jobs, most of us around here and can afford to give back to the community. We haven't given to the senior citizens or veterans just yet but I'm sure they'll appreciate it too and be very thankful.”

The food and presents were donated by people in the sheriff's department.
