SARASOTA, Fla. - The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office is helping out a local food bank this holiday season.

Sheriff Tom Knight presented a check for $5,000 to All Faiths Food Bank on Tuesday.  According to the sheriff's office, the funds came from seized or recovered cash that went unclaimed, and per state statute can be distributed to a qualifying charity.

“All Faiths Food Bank continually demonstrates its commitment to this community,” said Sheriff Knight, “and it is gratifying to be able to help our neighbors in a small but meaningful way.”
