Food from the Ohio State Highway Patrol’s Cram the Cruiser Food Drive on Monday was delivered to Lawrence County food pantries.

“We had two pickup trucks full of food,” Sgt. Chris Smith, said. “We dropped the food off at the Chesapeake Community Center, Michael’s Grace Place in South Point and the Ironton City Mission.”

Along with the state highway patrol, Glockner’s South Point Ford, Armstrong Cable, WKEE Radio, the Lawrence County Chamber of Commerce, People for the Point and Smith Insurance in South Point teamed up together to make Cram the Cruiser possible.

“It went really well. I’m glad that we can all work together to collect food for those who need it,” Smith said. “We are planning on having the food drive again next year and we want to get more businesses involved with it.”
