Applications open for Santa Wears a Badge campaign in Jackson County

The ninth annual Santa Wears a Badge campaign kicks off today.

As many different local organizations find ways to give back to their communities, the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department opens applications for families to register for their annual Christmas present delivery.

Serving under-privileged kids in Jackson County for nine years, the sheriff’s department wants to make sure kids in the county wake up to find presents under their Christmas tree.

To apply, families must live in Jackson County, have not applied or received assistance from another organization for Christmas, and have children up to age 12.

The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help. If you would like to have a drop-off box at your business contact Connie Bosarge at 228-769-3247. This campaign grows bigger and bigger every year with the community’s help.

Until December 1st, families looking to receive these gifts can apply online on the Jackson County Sheriff Department’s website.
