“This is great because, you know, these shops that are collecting food for folks who are in need are having a difficult time keep stock. So, be able to restock their shelves get them through the winter,” said Bridgeport Police Chief John Walker.

If you won’t be home, donations can be dropped off at the police department on Dec. 9 and 10.
