so happy to have them again inour studios. Sheriff Keebo Taylor from the
Gwenec County Sheriff's Office. Sheriff,how are you, man? I am
doing great, Momn how are youdoing? I wish I was doing better.
I wish I was doing better.I had a little flat tire coming
into the office this morning, butnothing a little roadside assistant can't do to
fix it. I could have doneit, but I wasn't trying to deal
with all that. Absolutely, butwe're talking about more important things today.

Man, super happy about this,uh, this this event that last year
I was there so little, alittle sprinkly. Let's just say that,
right, Sheriff, So a littlesprinkly. The weather was wasn't too our
favor, but that didn't matter because, man, how many families came through
this event. You know that Ialways look forward because it's something about giving.
You know, we do the backto school that you know, you

go all in with that one.The weather's always nice and hot. But
this one, you know, thisone touches home because it's a very nostalgic
time of the year, right whenwhen Christmas is getting closed, Thanksgiving and
you know you're doing your third annualThanksgiving food giveaway. Let's talk about that,
man, because this is something thatI know. It takes a long
time to plan it together and thelogistics behind them getting those cards in and

out. Man, good times.Let me tell you what, man,
Let me first of all give ashout out to my staff that does a
great job for this. You know, basically all I do is come in
with an idea or a concept,and they're the ones that put it into
reality for us. When we firststarted this, you know, when I
came in, I came in duringthe middle of COVID, right, and

we understood at that time that therewere a lot of people out here that
had food insecurities. And I meanthese insecurities a year round we came up
with the idea of doing a fooddrive ord on the holidays just try to
you know, partnership in and youknow, just try to alleviate take a
little stress off of folks that aredoing the holidays. Our partners has been

fantastic. Each year this project grows, they come in more, more people
are you know, getting on boardmore the corporate sponsors and local sponsors.
Folks is coming in and providing morefood each and every year. So even
though we're not in COVID, thatdoesn't mean that there's still not some food
and securities that are out there andwe're just trying to do our part.

Sheriff talk about this twelve thousand poundsof fresh produce, man, Like,
I just think of that number.Man, What does that look like physically
when you're looking at twelve thousand pounds? What is that big old tractor trailer
where we looking at look like acouple of tractor trailers with blessings on them.
How about that right there? Man? I love it. Yeah,
you're talking twelve thousand pounds of freshproduce. You know, you guys hook

up and bless four thousand families.Man, that's a lot of families to
bless man. Just we're trying todo our part. That's that's that's what
it's all about, man, AndI'm I'm happy to be able to be
there again this year. This isa great opportunity for you know. We
was talking to my staff members.We had a meeting yesterday. I'm like,
Man, if there's any other eventthat I need you guys to go

to wrap up the year, isthis? Is this? You know,
food drive because you'll be able tosee, you know how these families look
so happy to be able to pullinto a a little drive in thing,
you know, and you just seethe different departments, a sheriff's office,
just open up your trunk and boomload you up with all the stuff and
then you're on your way out andyou have something really good to to have,
you know, a nice little feastfor for Thanksgiving. How did this

come about? Man? Because Iknow you you've been talking about the different
activities you do throughout the throughout thecity and and throughout the county. But
you know, when you see whenyou see these families, are we seeing
like Hispanic families? Are we seeingyou know, African American families? What
do we see as a ratio.Is it? Is it pretty divided?
Is it pretty even? What doyou see out there? I can give

you a ratio, I mean thatmuch. I don't know, but I
can tell you Gwennet County is it'sa melting pot of different cultures. I
think it's somewhere last count maybe betweenone hundred and fifty and two hundred different
cultures that you know is represented herein Gwenett County. So I couldn't tell
you who or what. The onlything I can tell you is is that

when we came into this Shriff's office, we were committed to be in the
shaff for everybody. It doesn't matterif you're Hispanic. It didn't matter if
you're black, it doesn't matter ifyou're white, whatever your culture is,
whatever your race is. You know, we are the shriffs for the Sheriff's
office for everybody. And then withthat, we don't you know, it
doesn't matter who you are. Youknow, if you feel like you know,

you got the need to come byand you know, grab food,
you know, for you and yourfamily, we welcome you there. It
didn't cost anything, you know,no judgment, none of that. Just
