News

GULF COUNTY, Fla. (WMBB) — Thousands of dollars worth of toy donations are lining the halls of the Gulf County Sheriff’s Office after what they said has been their biggest toy drive yet.

Gulf County Sheriff, Mike Harrison, told our media partner, the Port St. Joe Star, this is the largest toy drive the sheriff’s office has ever put on in the 10 years he’s been in office.

This year, the drive will give toys to 250 Gulf County kids in need.

Sheriff Harrison said he was almost certain there would be a surplus of donated toys which won’t go to waste.

Thanks to the generosity of Gulf County donors, he expects to be able to send a large number of donations to Kentucky, Tennessee and other area affected by the deadly tornadoes that swept across the Midwest.
