Deputies distribute money in operation giving back

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - In the spirit of giving, San Diego sheriff's deputies handed out $24,000 in cash Wednesday to San Diegans in need.

The deputies were given a boost by a local resident who heard stories of deputies reaching into their own pockets to help residents while on the job. Ahead of Thanksgiving, the man accompanied deputies on a ride-along throughout the county to donate money to those who need financial help.

The recipients included shelters that help domestic violence victims, foster parents who take in children with special needs, a senior center that helps seniors struggling with food insecurity, single parents and others.

Deputies also visited thrift shops and families referred by churches, schools and resource centers.
