Christmas Connections for Kids
October 23 - December 18
Perhaps our most cherished resource is our children. The men and women of the Adams County Sheriff’s Office recognize and appreciate this, and work hard to build and strengthen relationships between law enforcement and our youth. One way we make a difference in the lives of many less privileged children in Adams County is through our toy drive “Christmas Connections for Kids.” However, we cannot do it alone, we need your help
School Resource Officers assigned to the Juvenile Services Unit of the Sheriff’s Office work in all unincorporated public schools, in six different school districts, as well as parochial and private schools, daycare facilities, and community centers. Those S.R.O.s, as well as Patrol Deputies and Victim Advocates, nominate children to receive a gift through their personal knowledge of a family’s hardship and needs. Children may also be nominated through patrol contacts involving unfortunate and sometimes heartbreaking situations, in which the children can benefit from a positive interaction with a deputy. (Nominations by others and self-nominations are not accepted.)
Christmas Connections is a tax deductible non-profit 501c-3 organization, established through the Adams County Sheriff’s Foundation. We are deeply committed to strengthening our community and are seeking partnerships with businesses and community members who share our compassion.
