Members of the Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office, the Niceville Police Department, and other public safety agencies will be bagging groceries this Saturday (September 22) at Kelley's Supervalu Foods in the Palm Plaza Shopping Center, 1015 East John Sims Parkway, Niceville.

All tips collected by the volunteer baggers will go directly to a relief fund to benefit families of Police Officers, Firefighters, and other public safety professionals injured and killed in New York City.

A similar effort the previous Saturday at Albertson's in Fort Walton Beach generated more than $10,000.

The fund raising effort will run from 10:00 until 6:00 on Saturday, September 22.

Any donations by check should be made payable to "Florida Fire and Emergency Services Fund, Inc," with a notation on the check for "NYC Fire & Emergency Relief Fund."
