DeWitt County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Santa
By Carl R. Bowen
DeWitt County Sheriff
It is that time of year again! Christmas is just around the corner. The DeWitt County Sheriff’s Office will again be sponsoring the Deputy Santa Program for the needy children of this county. The last 22 years that Deputy Santa has been in operation have been a great success. We have helped many, many needy children in our county have a wonderful, merry Christmas.
We wish to continue to provide for the needy children throughout DeWitt County. Our efforts have taken us from one end of the county to the other and throughout all of our communities. We would like to thank all of our contributors from the past 22 years, and we hope their donations along with any new donations this year will help satisfy the needs of the children in our community.
We are asking parents of needy children to sign up those children, ages 16 and under. We are kindly asking for any new and unwrapped toys, or wrapping paper to benefit our cause. You may bring them to the DeWitt County Sheriff’s Office at 208 E. Live Oak, Cuero, TX, or Yorktown City Hall at 119 E. Main St., Yorktown, TX 78164, at any time until Dec. 16.
Any monetary donations may be mailed or brought to us at any time. Please make checks payable to “Deputy Santa.” There will also be a toy drop off donation box at Eling Cooperation Real Estate, 302 E. Broadway, Cuero, TX 77954, and the Juvenile Probation Office, 310 Dunn St., Cuero, TX.
The Deputy Santa wish list will be out Nov. 25, at the DeWitt County Sheriff’s office, Yorktown City Hall, Eling Cooperation Real Estate, and the Juvenile Probation Office, and must be returned to the DeWitt County Sheriff’s Office or Yorktown City Hall by no later than 5 p.m., Dec. 16.
If any donors should have any questions about the program please feel free to call the Sheriff’s Office and speak to Kim at 361-275-5734 or 361-275-0899. We will begin delivering the gifts to the children Dec. 20-23.
Thank you for your help and God Bless!
