A message from the Sheriff's Office:
The season is upon us. It's once again time to kick off the Sheriff's Office yearly toy drive leading up to Christmas. The Toy Drive started with the Marine Corp Toys for Tots for several years. When the Marine Corp pulled their local detachment out of the Leavenworth area several years ago, we partnered with Catholic Charities. We continued with our mission to brighten the Christmas of children who might otherwise not have a Christmas. Unfortunately, this year Catholic Charities is unable to assist due to Covid-19 restrictions. Undaunted, we again have changed our aim point and partnered with the Leavenworth area Salvation Army and hope to assist them in distribution items for Christmas.
Boxes are set up in the Justice Center Lobby and in the County Courthouse basement in front of the Emergency Management Office. We are also pleased to again be partnering with area Citizens Bank locations for toy collection. Our focus is simple, new unwrapped toys for both boys and girls ages infant to middle teen. Thanks. Be well - Be safe.
