Steuben County Sheriff Jim Allard reports that on Saturday, December 3, 2022, deputies will host the “Toys for Tots Fill the Patrol Car and Coats for Kids” event at both Erwin and Hornell Walmart plazas. From 10am to 1pm toys and children’s coats will be collected for Steuben County children. The toys will be distributed to Steuben County children in need and the new or gently used coats are distributed to Steuben County school districts for children in need of cold weather clothing. This event has grown over the past three years, and the generosity and charitable spirit at both events last year was overwhelming and indicative of the sense of community in our county.
“Toys for Tots” donation boxes will be posted in both the lobby of the Sheriff’s Office and the County Office Building in Bath, New York, for those that wish to donate but cannot attend the event.
Sheriff Allard wishes to thank all who participate, donate, visit, assist, fund and work to make both of these events a success which will benefit hundreds of Steuben County families during this holiday season.
