Lt. Patty Simons Law Enforcement Food Drive

EPZ is a proud supporter of the Lt. Patty Simons 22nd Annual Law Enforcement Food Drive!

Join more than a dozen local law enforcement agencies and area businesses to help collect over 12 tons of food. The Lt. Patty Simons Law Enforcement Food Drive is one of the largest in the region, and will supply food to many local pantries and food programs. 


Non-perishable food items and toys may be dropped off at all participating police departments and businesses (including the Elmwood Park Zoo) through Wednesday, December 13. 

On Thursday, December 14 at 9:30AM, a parade of police cars and motorcycles will lead a flatbed tractor-trailer loaded with the donated food and toys from EPZ to The Salvation Army on Swede St. in Norristown. 

After the parade, law enforcement officers, politicians, and government representatives will form an assembly line to unload the trailer! The rest of the food will be brought to the Catholic Social Services and the Patrician Society in Norristown, the Mattie N. Dixon Community Cupboard in Ambler and to the Snack Backpack Program at Eagleville Elementary School.
