The Burton, Hale and Vogel Legacy Foundation on July 1 provided 80 free lunches to the Clinton County Sheriff’s Office, including the deputies, administration staff and jail employees.
“With the global pandemic in addition to the recent disdain of women and men in law enforcement, we felt like it was the perfect time to do the right thing,” the foundation stated. “We fully support our local law enforcement and want them to feel appreciated.”
The BHV Foundation was founded in 2018 and provides scholarships for Clinton County high school seniors in addition to philanthropy work within the county.
Sheriff Ralph Fizer Jr. expressed his appreciation to the trio, writing, “The coronavirus pandemic along with the unrest in our nation has created an environment of stress and uncertainty for first responders. It’s comforting to know we have citizens who continue to support us and bringing in the food was a nice gesture to let us know that there are still people thinking of us out there!”
