Have Your Photo Taken with "Deputy Donut" in Front of the Jail to Help Raise Funds for the Refuge, (Children's Home in Austin)
Scott-The Scott County Sheriff's Office along with Scott County Inmates, The Concrete Lady and Watson's Signs and Graphics have teamed up to raise funds for the "The Refuge", (children's home in Austin). The home will house children from Scott and surrounding counties in a time of crisis.
The Concrete Lady of Clarksville, IN donated the concrete pig and Watson's Signs and Graphics donated the Sheriff's Office stickers. The pig's Scott County Sheriff's Office Uniform was painted by one the Scott County Inmates and other jail inmates put up the fence and laid the paving stones. No taxpayer money was used for this project.
Sheriff Goodin stated, "I bet we are the only jail/police department to have a concrete pig in front of their office or jail." Sheriff Goodin went on to say, "this is one time where someone can call a police officer a pig and everyone will laugh. The pig's name is "Deputy Donut", another common reference to the eating habits of police officers. 100% of the donations go directly to The Refuge.
Sheriff Goodin wants everyone to stop by the Scott County Sheriff's Office/Jail to have your picture taken, look at the unbelievable artwork by the inmate, or just put a donation in the donation box beside "Deputy Donut." No donation is too small. "Deputy Donut" will only be available for photos and visits for a limited time. After the fund raiser is over "Deputy Donut" will be given to the "The Refuge" to do with it, what they wish.
Sheriff Goodin wants visitors to post their photo on all social media and challenge others to get their picture taken with "Deputy Donut." Every police officer in the United States of America should feel proud knowing that terms used by folks to be negative to police can be made into a positive, raising money for children in need.
Anyone wanting to send a donation by mail can send it to the Scott County Sheriff's Office, 111 South First Street, Scottsburg, IN 47170. On line donations can made directly to The Refuge at the following website https://www.therefugeforchildren.org
