For eight years, the Deschutes County Sheriff Office has joined efforts with the Riverhouse Hotel and Convention Center and SYSCO Foods to supply many hungry families a holiday meal during the Christmas season. "The Deschutes County Sheriffs Office is proud to assist those people less fortunate than ourselves this holiday season with more than 575 complete holiday meals, all though donations. We typically pick that up at the Riverhouse from the SYSCO truck; again provided from the Purcell family, SYSCO Foods and the La Pine Food Basket. Deschutes Country Sheriffs Office transports that to La Pine." Sheriff Larry Blanton says members of the Department along with other volunteers will meet at the Riverhouse next Monday to assemble and deliver the food baskets. Blanton says there are also some toys and needed clothing items included with the baskets; all coming from community donations.
