SPARTA, NJ- The Sussex County Food Pantry has been receiving donations collected by police departments around the county recently during the Stuff the Bus campaign. On Sunday Sparta Police officers were outside of Stop and Shop collecting food and monetary donations.
“It was a great day,” Sparta Chief Neil Spidaletto said. In addition to the food they collected more than $600 to be donated to the food pantry.
Several Sparta Police officers and some of their family members were joined community service assistants as well as other Sussex County Police agencies, he said.
People have also been depositing donations in a collection box located in the lobby of the Sparta Police Department headquarters. That box will remain through Monday, November 30.
