Cleveland County Detention Center employees raised more than $200 from last week’s pie-throwing event to purchase school materials for local children.Fifteen people volunteered to take a pie in the face at the Aug. 25th fundraiser. Detention staff collected $225 that day, bringing the total raised to $675. The deadline to collect school materials from the public has been extended to Sept. 15. Anyone may drop off items at either the Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office Administration Building, 128 S. Peters Ave., Norman, or CCDC, 2550 W. Franklin Road, Norman, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.Sheriff Joe Lester said 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.
