The Richardson County Sheriff’s Office held their annual Stuff the Cruiser Event this month. At the event in Humboldt they filled the back of two vehicles. The donations benefited 72 children (from 14 families). Each family also received a basket of toiletries and a blanket for each family member.
The Richardson County Sheriff’s office collected gifts at the Sherriff’s office and during their annual Stuff the Cruiser event in Falls City on December 9, adding around 200 new toys to those collected earlier this holiday season during the Jingle Bell Ride. Gently used coats, countless stuffed animals, and pet supplies were also donated by community members. Those gifts were then added to hundreds of gifts and over 50 gift cards provided by 26 individual donors, Cooper Nuclear, Brown’s, Falls City Care Center, Dorr and Clark, the Elks, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, and three area churches. These gifts were combined and then distributed out of the Richardson County Law Enforcement Center this last week to make Christmas brighter for 116 children (from 50 families) in Eastern Richardson County. The generosity of donors in Richardson County was overwhelming this year! Pictured above Officer Jeremiah Franks, Commissioner Rick Karas, Kristin Morehead and Sheriff Rick Hardesty Jr.
