The sheriff’s Palm Desert station is partnering with a non-profit organization to collect food and other items for at-risk youth next month, a sergeant said Sunday.
The organization, Operation SafeHouse, offers law enforcement a way to help runaway children and other youths in crisis, according to Riverside County Sheriff’s Sgt. Larry Sherman.
As part of the five-day ”Stuff the Bus” campaign, Operation SafeHouse is looking for a variety of donations that include kitchen towels, soap, disinfectant spray and many other things, Sherman said.
The event is from Nov. 3 to Nov. 8.
People can place their donations inside boxes placed next to a bus located at the sheriff’s Palm Desert station at 73705 Gerald Ford Drive.
The event will take place from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
