We could never thank our community enough for the wonderful things you have done to help us move through this unprecedented time. We have experienced small business owners, communities, school children and private groups of citizens do some pretty thoughtful things to let us know they are thinking about us. So over the next week, we are going to express our attitude of gratitude to let everyone know, how grateful we are.

apex buys lunch for martin county sheriff office covid-19Apex Pavers purchased Toojays lunch for 200-employees. Employees from our law enforcement, corrections and civil division got an unexpected treat that day…It couldn’t have come at a better time, since it was pouring rain and many of us didn’t want to venture through the storm. Lunch was awesome. Thank you Apex for your incredible generosity.

Thank you to Kristen Kroen and Kayla Kolenich and the Pine Croft Condominium Community. They all pitched in to buy pizzas and drinks for our 6pm-6am Uniform Road Patrol Shift. Because of social distancing, our deputies do their shift briefings outdoors—so they had to endure the smell of pizza as they came in two at a time to get a plate. It was worth every bit or aroma!

Thank you to the management at Publix at Wedgewood Plaza for dropping off boxes of chicken wings….they went fast, and were much appreciated. Uncle Giuseppe’s Lil-Bit-A-Brooklyn is right here in Martin County, and made a special trip to see us with incredible Brooklyn style cuisine.

We do our best to support all of these small businesses all year long—and we hope you will also join us in continuing to support them, sharing our attitude of gratitude.
