Whether on the range, in the field or under the big Metropolitan Ministries tent, leading by example is a big part of Sheriff Chad Chronister's character. When it comes to giving and charity it is no different. That's why he and his wife Nikki, will be making their second appearance to volunteer at the bay area food and gift bank tomorrow to help bring some cheer to those less fortunate. Starting at 8:45 a.m. at 905 Governor Street in Tampa the couple will hand out food and toys to families in need. For Sheriff Chronister, this is more than just an effort to give out some goods, this is a chance to impact the community in a positive way. That is an essential part of the mission both personally and at work, he said.
"The need in our community is great throughout the year and we never forget that, but during the holiday season, it is important to let our fellow citizens know that they matter and we care about them no matter what. For both my wife and I and this Agency, nothing is more important." said Sheriff Chronister. "The first time we volunteered here made such a big impact that I knew I had to come back and do it again."
While Sheriff Chronister has personally donated to the effort, he believes it is important to get physically involved. This effort is part of an ongoing endeavor at the Sheriff's Office to give back to the community. Both as an Agency and through individual efforts by deputies, employees and their families, Sheriff Chronister encourages community involvement. He hopes his example will motivate others to give.
