CLARKSVILLE, NY (NEWS10) – The Albany County Sheriff’s put on a holiday dinner to try and give back to the community.
Sheriff Craig Apple was donning his festive holiday blazer at the event. This is the annual Hilltown Christmas, which services over 200 kids and 95 families.
It gives everyone a nice meal around the holidays bringing smiles a lot of faces.
And for Sheriff Apple he says this is one of the most important things his department does.
“I always tell everybody, that we got the protecting and the serving, and this is the serving. And I think this is what a lot of law enforcement should be doing today, finding ways to five back to the community, build those bridges with community, because the reality is there is no law enforcement agency that will survive without the community,” said Sheriff Craig Apple.
This was the 28th year of the event. Proceeds go to the Schenectady County Historical Society and the local YMCA.
