The Ventura County Sheriff's Office has kicked off the 27th annual 'Share-iff's Toy Drive' to help local families during this holiday season. 

Every year, thousands of children experience a Christmas morning with no gifts to open. With the hope of making this year's Christmas morning a little brighter for those in our community, the Sheriff's Office will be collecting new, unwrapped toys for children ages 16 and younger.

All the toys collected will be distributed to the children within the cities of Camarillo, Thousand Oaks, Fillmore, Moorpark, Ojai and the unincorporated areas serviced by the Ventura County Sheriff's Office.

The Sheriff patrol stations will have boxes on hand where the public can leave their unwrapped toys Monday thru Friday from 8:00 am until 5:00 P.M.  Donations will be accepted until December 20, 2012.  Toys will be delivered on December 22, 2012, by Sheriff's employees who will be volunteering their time.
