HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Fla. — The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office is launching a new initiative to help local nonprofit organizations stay open. The sheriff's office said those organizations are needed now more than ever.
For 30 days, starting Monday, the sheriff's office will donate $1,000 every day to a different nonprofit organization that provides critical services for the county.
The money was raised through donations and various HCSO charity events.
The selected nonprofit will be announced every day at 10 a.m. on HCSO social media accounts. The sheriff's office hopes the surprise brings much-needed encouragement during this pandemic.
"These organizations have shown unconditional dedication and commitment over the years," said Sheriff Chad Chronister. "We want to help keep their spirits high and help assist with the resources they need to continue their missions."
