Santa Drop puts smiles on children’s faces

Friday, December 28, 2018

To the Editor:

The 2018 Putnam County FOP Santa Drop was a huge success thanks to all the generous donations. Santa and the Grinch were able to hand deliver toys to 60 Putnam County children.

In addition, we worked with the Giving Tree and were able to donate toys to Putnam County children in foster care.

This year The Grinch joined Santa and all his helpers to deliver gifts all over Putnam County. The children were all very excited and could not wait to get their picture taken with Santa and The Grinch.

The Putnam County FOP would like to thank you all for your donations, without your help this would not have been possible.
