DelCo Sheriff’s Office supports Toys for Tots

Posted

Sheriff Craig DuMond announced the participation of the Delaware County Sheriff’s Office Correctional and Road Patrol Divisions in the 2022 Toys for Tots toy drive. A total of $2,640 was raised through the generous contributions from both divisions. 

The Corrections Officers Union led by President Paul Moore donated $1,000 (in addition, $100 was privately donated) and through the Corrections Officers participation in “Double Down December,” spearheaded by Sergeant Donald Simonds, oficers donated another $1,000 toward the purchase of toys. 

The Road Patrol Division, led by Union President Kyle Karcher, participated in “No Shave November” and “Double Down December” raising a total of $1,080, of which, $540 was donated to the Toys for Tots campaign, and the remaining $540 was donated to an upcoming “Random Acts of Kindness” holiday initiative. 

“No Shave November” and “Double Down December” are agency sponsored campaigns which allow participating male corrections officers/deputy sheriffs to forgo shaving facial hair for a period of one month during each campaign. The participating female corrections officers/deputy sheriffs were able to wear colored nail polish for the same time period. Participating members pay dues toward their participation in the campaigns and money collected is donated to local charitable organizations.  

“The kindness and heartfelt concern displayed by both divisions for the children of Delaware County during this Christmas season, is just overwhelming,” DuMond said. ”I’m extremely honored to be associated with such kind and caring individuals and couldn’t be more proud of their dedication to the wellbeing of the people of our communities.  After all, giving without the expectation of receiving is what the Christmas season is all about.”
