As a way of giving back and saying thank you, Stephen’s Farmhouse began Law Enforcement Pie Day for Sutter County. In its second year, the effort has expanded to include Colusa County with the help of its citizens.
“With all of the negativity our police have been receiving, this our way to say ‘Thank You’ and that we appreciate all what they do,” said Lisa Selover who has spearheaded the involvement of Colusa County.
“My understanding is that someone approached Stephens Farmhouse about including Colusa County and somehow my name got mentioned and I gladly too the project on,” said Selover. “I have many friends and relatives who were police officers and often they work thankless jobs.”
The cost is $10 to sponsor a pie for an officer and staff person; however, Selover added any amount will do.
“We aim to show our appreciation and support,” said Selover. “Anyone who contributes, even as little as a dollar, will have their name added to a list that will be presented to the officers.”
With just over a dozen names on the contribution list, Selover commented more contributions are needed to provide enough pies for all county law enforcement.
“We want to fill up this list and to have a slice of pie for everyone,” said Selover.
The Colusa County law enforcement agencies include the Colusa County Sheriff’s Office, Colusa City Police, Williams City Police, the District Attorneys Office, and the Williams Area CHP Office, and their respective staff.
The pies will be distributed during a special community event at the Sutter County Veterans Hall on Sunday, Dec. 18, from 1 PM to 4 PM. Officers can pick up their pies, and enjoy the afternoon.
“Those local officers who are on duty don’t have to worry,” said Selover. “We will pick up their pies and deliver it to them.”
The deadline to contribute to the cause is Friday, Dec. 16.
“Contributions can be dropped off or mailed to our shop [401 Jay St, Colusa] or give Stephen’s Farmhouse a call at (530) 673-0406,” said Selover.
Selover added that contributions help cover the cost of the pies, and any proceeds will be donated to the Restoration Railroad, a gospel-based organization that is growing to help survivors of human trafficking, domestic violence, and sexual assault restore their lives and to help prevent human exploitation in Yuba-Sutter.
