The Cleveland County Detention Center staff will do just about anything to raise money for children, and that includes taking a pie in the face. CCDC will host a pie-throwing event 9 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 25, in the jail lobby, 2550 W. Franklin Road, in Norman. The public is invited to throw a pie at Undersheriff Rhett Burnett and CCDC staff members. Cost is $5 per pie. Sheriff Joe Lester said detention staff will take all the funds raised from the event to purchase school materials for children. The supplies will be distributed among Robin Hill Public School, Lexington, Little Axe and Noble Public Schools. Lester said CCDC collects school supplies for kids every year. This fundraiser helps families in Cleveland County who may not have the capability of buying materials for their children. “As many parents know, buying a list of school supplies can be expensive, especially when there are multiple children in a household,” Lester said. “This supply drive will ensure that students will be able to learn with all the supplies they need for class.” Any questions regarding this press release and/or information can be addressed to Meghan Jackson, Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office, community liaison/public information officer. Jackson can be reached at (405) 701-8847.
