The Hall County Sheriff’s Office once again teamed up with the residents of The Village at Deaton Creek for their annual toy drive earlier this month. 

Every year, their generosity fills a truck with toys, games, bicycles, stuffed animals and food items to be distributed to those in need. This year, as in years past, the response from those residents has been overwhelming, and the effort continues to grow every Christmas. 

The toys were picked up and delivered to the Hall-Dawson Court-Appointed Special Advocates, thanks to Conditioned Air Systems, which donated the use of one of its company trucks for the haul. Once there, the toys are sorted, stored and distributed to families in need for Christmas.

“This time of year it’s important to remember that there are families in our community who, without this sort of kindness, might not enjoy the kind of Christmas that most of us do,” said Sheriff Gerald Couch in a press release. “It really is a pleasure for us to partner with the residents of Deaton Creek and companies like Conditioned Air Systems to help bring a little joy to their holidays.”
