SHERIFF OVERTON ANNOUNCES OPERATION CHRISTMAS TREE 2018
Sheriff Bill Overton kicked off 2018 Operation Christmas Tree the afternoon of Tuesday, October 16, 2018.
Overton said, “In the past two years, since this charity’s inception, the Office of the Sheriff has been able to help 51 families in Franklin County during Christmas. By pre-selling Fraser Fir Christmas Trees for only $30 a tree, all proceeds are directed to this cause. Toys, clothing and food are given to those less fortunate with the hopes of making Christmas a little brighter.”
Overton went on to state how anyone wishing to pre-purchase a beautiful tree can contact Deputy H. L. Nolen at 540-814-1724.
