BATH, NY – From Steuben County Sheriff Jim Allard:
A “Toys for Tots” campaign entitled “Fill the Patrol Car” sponsored by the Steuben County Sheriff’s Office will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday (Dec. 12) at Walmart locations in Painted Post and Hornell.
Steuben County Sheriff Jim Allard encourages those who can donate to bring unwrapped toys to either location for distribution to needy children in Steuben County. Donations of unwrapped toys can also be made at drop boxes at the Steuben County Public Safety Building, 7007 Rumsey St., Bath, N.Y.
Erwin and Hornell:
Saturday, December 12th, 2020 from 10am – 2pm
Deputies of the Steuben County Sheriff’s Office, staff from the Steuben County Sheriff’s Foundation and the Steuben County branch of “Toys for Tots” will be collecting unwrapped toys for the US Marine Corps “Toys for Tots” program, and gently used coats for the Steuben County Sheriff’s Office Winter Coat Drive. Both programs exclusively serve Steuben County residents in need. The Sheriff’s Office will have a patrol car stationed in the parking lots of both the Erwin and Hornell Walmart stores to collect donations.
“Whether you are donating a coat or a toy, it will benefit a child in Steuben County” said Ray Dell, Chairman of the Steuben County Sheriff’s Foundation. “We are excited to work with Sheriff Allard and the team at the Sheriff’s Office to directly help children in need.”
“While you are shopping this Saturday, stop by our patrol cars and help out a neighbor in need. I will be at the Erwin site and Undersheriff McNelis will be at the Hornell site to wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays and thank you for your generosity” said Sheriff Allard. “What a great way to give back to the community. Look for our patrol cars in the parking lots!”
