Nature of Incident:

Sheriff's Office to Kick Off 31th Annual 'Share-iffs' Toy Drive

Location:

Countywide

Date & Time:

Nov. 01, 2016 through Dec. 15, 2016

Unit(s) Responsible:

All Sheriff's Facilities

Narrative:

 

The Share-iff's Toy Drive has been a tradition in Ventura County for 31 years.  Many families do not have the resources to provide their children with a traditional Christmas celebration.  Each year, thousands of children experience a Christmas morning with no gifts to open.

 

Members of the Sheriff's Office respond to calls throughout the county and encounter families without the means to exchange gifts during the holiday season.  Fortunately, some of these families will be the recipients of gifts this holiday season, thanks to volunteers who participate in the Share-iff's Toy Drive.

 

The Sheriff's Office will be collecting new, unwrapped toys for children ages 13 and younger.  All of the toys will be distributed to children within the cities of Camarillo, Thousand Oaks, Moorpark, Fillmore, Ojai, and the unincorporated areas served by the Ventura County Sheriff's Office.

 

All of our patrol stations will have boxes where staff members and the public can leave their unwrapped toys Monday through Friday from 8:00 am until 5:00 pm between November 01th and December 15th.

 

On December 17th, members of the Sheriff's Office will open Santa's workshop and provide some Christmas magic to those who need it most.
