Each year, the Office of the Sheriff looks forward to our annual Operation Christmas Joy event to provide assistance for families at Christmas. This year is our 7th consecutive year for this program, which began with selling Christmas trees to financially support the cause. After a struggling Christmas tree business, we approached many churches and businesses in Franklin County in 2020 to ask for their assistance. Each year, the
list of supporters and donors for this program continues to grow as more and more want to help make this an amazing event!
This year, the Office of the Sheriff was able to partner with over 20 churches and over 90 businesses to provide food, clothing and toys for 43 families which includes over 135 children!!! These numbers seem to grow each year and we are so very thankful that this program is getting bigger year by year!
We would like to thank all of those who have partnered with us to provide such a blessing to these families. Without the collective contributions, both large and small, this event would not be able to be as successful as it is!
