The event was coordinated by Sylvester's brother and niece, who say they wanted to the community the positive impact the police department have every day.

Members of the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office, Bradenton Police, and Palmetto Police distributed more than 150 meal baskets to needy families and the homeless.

Sylvester was a Manatee County Sheriff's Deputy for 30 years, and passed away in 2014.
