Tucson, Ariz. - The Border Patrol continues to strengthen community relationships by serving those in need in the southeastern Arizona. The Tucson sector Border Patrol donated close to 700 pounds of food to the Tucson Community Food Bank on Friday.
Agents from the Tucson sector stopped by the Tucson Community Food Bank to make a generous food donation of much needed items such as rice, beans, potatoes, and condiments. Joy Tucker, senior vice president of facilities for the Community Food Bank, stated "The Community Food Bank is very appreciative of the support and help that the Tucson Sector Border Patrol is providing us by collecting non perishable food items to help those in need within our community."
"Employees who work for the United States Border Patrol demonstrate a willingness to serve their country through the positions they hold," said Acting Deputy Chief Patrol Agent Jeanne Ray-Condon. "This is another example of their commitment to public service through support of charitable organizations."
Border Patrol agents are committed to serving the communities in which they work and live. The Border Patrol will continue to foster relationships within the communities they serve to improve the quality of life for residents.
