DeWitt County Sheriff's Office to help families in need with Deputy Santa program

Posted: Updated:


It is that time of year again! Christmas is just around the corner, and the DeWitt County Sheriff's Office is continuing to sponsor the Deputy Santa Program for needy children in this county.

In the last 20 years that Deputy Santa has been in operation it has been a great success. Our efforts have taken us from one end of the county to the other and throughout all of our communities.

We would like to thank all of our contributors from the past 20 years, and hope their donations along with any new donations this year will help satisfy the needs of the children in our community.

We are asking parents of needy children to sign up those children, ages 16 and under. The Deputy Santa wish list has been out since November 20, 2017 and the deadline for turning in those wish lists is December 13, 2017, no later than 5:00pm to the DeWitt County Sheriff's Office.

If you wish to donate any New and unwrapped toys or provide wrapping paper, you may bring them to the DeWitt County Sheriff's Office at 208 E. Liveoak St. Cuero, Texas 77954 any time until December 15, 2017. Any monetary donations can be mailed or also brought to the DeWitt County Sheriff's Office, make checks payable to "Deputy Santa".

The following locations will be for Toy drop off:
Eling Corporation Real Estate
302 E. Broadway Cuero, Texas
DeWitt County Juvenile Probation Office
310 Dunn St. Cuero, Texas

If you have any questions please feel free to call the Sheriff's Office and speak to Kim at 361-275-5734 or 361-275-0899.


Thank you for your help and God Bless!
Sheriff Carl R. Bowen
