St. Lucie County Sheriff Mascara thanks volunteers from St. Lucie County communities for working to provide Christmas gifts for needy families
Thanks to the generous support of St. Lucie County residents, the Sheriff's Office was able to help 69 needy families with 212 children, according to Sheriff Ken J. Mascara.
"Last Saturday, volunteers joined members of the Sheriff's Office to wrap the gifts and prepare them for distribution to needy families in our community," Sheriff Mascara said.
"I want to especially thank the residents of Tropical Isles, who donated bicycles, toys and, most importantly, their time and effort to make this year's Christmas Families charity drive a success," Sheriff Mascara said. "The wonderful volunteers from this community help us every year. Without them, we would not be nearly as successful."
The Sheriff said, "I also want to thank the communities of Golden Ponds, Nettles Island and Savanna Club for their countless hours of voluneered time, as well as their donations of presents and cash. Members of those communities helped us wrap Christmas gifts for needy families Saturday."
"We collect toys, bicycles and financial contributions throughout the year for the Christmas Families charity drive," Sheriff Mascara said. "Donations to the St. Lucie County Crime Prevention League are tax-deductible as charitable donations. The Crime Prevention League is organized under the 501(c)3 rules of our tax code."
People can mail their donations throughout the year to: St. Lucie County Crime Prevention League, c/o St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office, 4700 West Midway Road, Fort Pierce, FL 34981-4825.
