Trenton, Tenn.–The Gibson County Sheriff’s Office is reaching out to the local community and will be doing essential grocery shopping for the elderly and persons with low immune systems next week.
In a press release, Sheriff Paul Thomas said, “In light of the recent Coronavirus and recommendations from multiple agencies suggesting citizens stay at home as much as possible, especially our senior citizens and those with low immune systems, the Gibson County Sheriff’s Office would like to offer some help, specifically to those individuals that fall into one of the two previous categories.”
Beginning Monday, March 23, 2020 and going through Friday, March 27, 2020, the Gibson County Sheriff’s Office will assist you with grocery shopping for essential items.
Sheriff Thomas said, “We will have two deputies, in marked patrol cars and in uniform for identification purposes, parked in the parking lots of grocery stores around Gibson County and you will just need to pull up to them and provide them with your list of essential grocery items and cash to pay for the items. Deputies will not be able to pay for the items any other way, so estimate how much cash to give them with your list and they will return your change and receipt back to you. The Deputies will get and pay for the items, then bring them to your vehicle.”
Deputies will be available at the following locations and times:
Monday March 23 9am to 11am @ Foodrite in Dyer
Tuesday March 24 9am to 11am @ Foodrite in Trenton (By-Pass)
Wednesday March 25 9am to 11am @ Humboldt Wal-Mart
Thursday March 26 9am to 11am @ Milan Wal-Mart
Friday March 27 9am to 11am @ Medina Food Giant
“The Gibson County Sheriff’s Office is committed to the overall safety and well being of our citizens and confident if we all take the suggested preventative measures we will get through this time without any major complications,” Thomas said.
