Sullivan County Sheriff's Office to give out $30,000 of gifts to kids

SULLIVAN COUNTY, Tenn. - Christmas is coming early this year for some Sullivan County kids -- the Sullivan County Sheriff's Department's eighth annual Toys From Cops program takes place this weekend.

The department has purchased $30,000 worth of toys to give away this year, but toys aren't the only thing on Santa's list according to Sheriff Wayne Anderson.

"We got a lot of clothes to give out this year," the sheriff told us. "Last year they were really into the clothes, they were taking a lot of the clothes. In fact, they cleaned us out on clothing."

The sheriff's department worked with school officials to determine who would participate. Those kids will come by the old Food Country in Blountville on Saturday to pick up their presents.

Sunday's event is open to anyone from Sullivan County who might need a little help this Christmas season.
