2017 Hope for the Holidays

Saturday, Dec. 16th, Dade County Sheriff’s Office handed out toys for our "Hope for the Holidays" program. The children enjoyed getting their picture with Santa, as well as making Christmas cookies, while Sheriff Ray Cross and Chief Deputy Tommy Bradford loaded the parent’s cars with toys.


THANK YOU to everyone that donated money and/or toys. Due to the overwhelming generosity, we were able to help over 100 kids this year!


Sheriff Ray Cross wants every church, family, individual, school, and the businesses that donated, to know how much your generosity is greatly appreciated!


Also, we appreciate our volunteers, that take time out of their schedule to make sure this event is always a success!


Volunteers for this event:


Back Row: Carolyn Bradford, Carolyn Bradford-Lane, Major Tommy Bradford, Rebecca Hill, Mary Ann Bradford


Front Row: Santa Claus and Sheriff Ray Cross.
