It’s that time of the year again when Santa Claus trades in his sleigh for a Halifax County Sheriff’s Office patrol cruiser.

The Halifax County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the community’s assistance with their 9th annual Stuff the Cruiser project by helping stuff a sheriff’s office patrol cruiser with Christmas gifts for children in need.

For the ninth year, the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office is once again partnering with individuals, businesses, churches and other organizations to collect new toys, coats and gloves in order to help children throughout Halifax County have a joyous Christmas. The Halifax County Sheriff’s Office will be collecting these items for children between the ages of 3 and 17-years-old.

The goal of the Stuff the Cruiser project is to actively involve law enforcement and the community by working together to help ensure that all Halifax County children will have a gift at Christmas.

The Halifax County Sheriff’s Office will have a patrol cruiser on display at the South Boston Walmart and ready to be stuffed with items on the following dates:

• Nov. 26 and 27 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

• Nov. 28 from 1 to 5 p.m.

• Dec. 4 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

• Dec. 5 from 1 to 5 p.m.

All other times, items will be collected at the sheriff’s office starting Monday through Dec. 10 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Sheriff Fred S. Clark said, “The sheriff’s office founded this program nine years ago with the overwhelming support of the community, donating items to make the program successful each year. We are so grateful for everyone who has supported our Stuff the Cruiser event. We couldn’t have done it without the support of you all. It is heartwarming and such a blessing for the community to come together making sure our children do not go without a gift at Christmas. Thank you so much for your continued support. I hope each of you have a Merry Christmas and may God bless you all.”
