Tucker Cadets Help Collect Donations
Cadets from the J.R. Tucker High School’s Marine Corps JROTC program attended a Dec. 2 meeting of the FBI Citizen's Academy Alumni Association to help collect donations of canned goods for the Central Virginia Food Bank. Part of the “Feds that Feed” program, an initiative of FBI Richmond's Community Outreach Program, the food donations joined those from other federal law enforcement partners such as the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms; the Drug Enforcement Agency; the Internal Revenue Service; the United States Secret Service; the United States Marshal’s Service; and the United States Postal Inspection Service. The JRTHS cadets (pictured, left to right: Joshua Rosengaft, Garrett Hagood, David Lam, Kimberly Stacy, and Jordan Johnson) who attended the meeting at the Community Idea Stations/WCVE studios in Chesterfield were also able to join Citizen's Academy alumni for a presentation by Special Agent Ally Mackenzie about the Innocent Images national initiative.
