The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office has launched Operation Bundle Up, a donation drive seeking coats, gloves, hats, rain gear and other cold weather attire for students who walk to school.

  • According to the OCSO, Sheriff’s school crossing guards have noticed increasing numbers of children without adequate outerwear as the winter months approach. 

The items collected will help ensure child pedestrians can safely walk to and from school during cold and wet conditions.

The agency is requesting residents drop off new or gently used jackets, coats, raincoats, umbrellas, gloves, hats and other cold weather gear at one of three Okaloosa sheriff’s offices located in Destin, Fort Walton Beach and Crestview.

If you have any items you can donate to Operation Bundle Up, please feel free to contact SRO Tom Henry at 850-582-3666 or email at thenry@sheriff-okaloosa.org or drop them off at any of the following Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office locations:

  • Destin Area – Stahlman Office at 107 Stahlman Avenue, Destin, Florida
  • Fort Walton Beach Area – Headquarters at 50 2nd Street, Shalimar, Florida
  • Crestview Area – Livingston Office at Hwy 90 and Hwy 85 intersection, Crestview, Florida

    Over worked. The Clinic is now a money game at the expense of the patient. Dr Vigo is an excellent doc, don’t know why he stays at
    White Wilson .
