SOMERVILLE – The Somerset County Sheriff’s Office recently collected toys on behalf of the ninth annual “Toys for Tots” campaign. 

“I am overjoyed by the response of our county residents, workers and businesses that opened their hearts to support this year’s “Toys for Tots” collection,” said Sheriff Frank J. Provenzano.  “The toys undoubtedly made the holidays merrier for many children this year.

“God bless everyone who contributed.  Their spirit of giving and desire to make children they don’t even know happy during the holidays are what make life so special,” he said. 

The Somerset County Sheriff’s Office partners every year with the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Foundation to collect new, unwrapped toys, to be distributed as holiday gifts to less fortunate children living in Somerset County.  

The Marine Corps Reserve has a close working relationship with social welfare agencies, churches and other local agencies that identify needy children in the community and play important roles in distributing the toys.

“Please stay safe as we roll into the new year,” said Sheriff Provenzano. “Thank you again for your continued support, and best wishes for a happy and healthy 2018.”
