PALM COAST, Fla. – The Grinch, who was captured while trying to steal Christmas by Flagler County deputies, served his “court ordered” community service Wednesday at the Santa Paws Food Drive and Adoption Event.

The hope was that the Grinch’s heart would grow as he spent time with the community, posing for pictures at the event.

“I don’t know if he has totally changed his ways, but I can say he photographs well!” Sheriff Rick Staly said of the Grinch.

Those who came with donations for the Flagler Humane Society were also able to meet McGruff and the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office K-9 Unit.

By the end of the evening, three and half over-sized carts were filled with food donations.

“Events like this are really what the holidays are all about,” Staly said. “I am thrilled that so many people came out to support the Flagler Humane Society with their donations."

To see how the deputies captured the Grinch, watch the video below.
