WAYNESNBORO, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - The Burke County Sheriff’s Office is hosting its annual Christmas toy drive to bring smiles to the faces of parents and children alike who may not otherwise have a joyous Christmas celebration.

Many children and families in Burke County live at or below the poverty line.

On average, the drive serves over 300 families and 1,000 children every year.

If you would like to donate a toy, deputies ask that they be new and wrapped. You may drop off the toys at the Burke County Sheriff’s Office, Burke County Judicial Center and Fish Eye Grill.

You can also help feed and care for families by sending a contribution to the Sheriff Alfonzo Williams Community Foundation Inc., P.O. Box 702, Waynesboro, GA 30830.

Here’s what your donation can provide:

  • $100 will sponsor a child for “Shop with a Cop” at Walmart.
  • $200 will sponsor two children for “Shop with a Cop” at Walmart.
  • $500 will allow the Sheriff’s Office to promote your business as a Silver Sponsor and enable them to purchase a host of different toys for children who attend the event (regardless of county of residence and financial status).
  • $1,000 will allow the Sheriff’s Office to promote your business as a Gold Sponsor and enable them to purchase a host of different toys for children who attend the event (regardless of county of residence and financial status).
