Warm Winter Wear for Darke County Children

The employees of the Darke County Sheriff's Office, through the support of Sheriff Toby L. Spencer and in conjunction with local law enforcement, crime stoppers, fire, and emergency medical professionals, have announced plans to host the ninth annual "Warm Winter Wear for Darke County Children."

New hats, gloves, and coats will be collected in the dispatch center of the Darke County Sheriff's Office from now until the middle of November. Monetary donations will also be accepted. All checks should be made payable to Darke County Children's Winter Wear and mailed in c/o Darke County Sheriff's Office, 5185 County Home Road, Greenville, Ohio 45331. During the last week of November, all items collected will be distributed to local children, ages 0-13, who are in need.

Last year the program was able to provide 324 children with new coats for the winter - provided all Darke County Schools with items they requested for their students thanks to generous donations from caring individuals and businesses. The need is exprected to be even greater this year due to the economic conditions of Darke County. Please share the joy of the season by helping the children.

Anyone with questions about this project may contact the Darke County Sheriff's Office at 937-548-3399, and have your call directed to Dispatch.
