PULASKI COUNTY, Va. (WFXR)—The Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office offered free breakfast to senior citizens on Thursday. Deputies personally made the food and served it to the community inside the Dublin Lions Club.
According to Pulaski County Sheriff Mike Worrell, his office wanted to host the breakfast to show appreciation.
“We don’t have a lot of opportunity to interact unless they are a victim of a crime or something like that. So, we just want to take the opportunity to show our appreciation and just be able to sit down and talk to them a little bit,” said Sheriff Worrell.
The Sheriff’s Office has been hosting more community events recently and donating to area youth. They’ve been using money from asset forfeiture.
“In legislation last year they actually passed something where we can use asset forfeiture money to build those relationships and improve those relationships with the community,” said Sheriff Worrell.
