About Restock the Shelves '14

Restock the Shelves is DJJ's new after-holiday agency-wide canned food drive to help our local food banks refill their pantries following the busy December holidays. This February, Commissioner Avery D. Niles encourages Georgia's Juvenile Justice Team to help end hunger in our communities by collecting canned goods. DJJ regional and facility staff will compete for prizes as we replenish volunteer food pantries and help feed hungry families throughout the state.
