The little red Christmas Stockings are back in area stores again this year.  Money collected from these Christmas Stockings will go to the Gulf County Sheriff’s Department Christmas Wishes for Children. 

The Sheriff’s Department finds out what the children in need in Gulf County want for Christmas, then with the new toy drive and money donated the Sheriff’s Department, tries to make those wishes come true. 

You can find these red Christmas Stockings in Port St. Joe at the St. Joseph Bay Golf Club, No Name Café, Coastal Cabin, Pepper’s, Port St. Joe Marina, Piggly Wiggly, Centennial Bank, Half Hitch Tackle, Ace Hardware, and Buy Rite Drugs, The Scallop Cove on the Cape has a stocking and they are the IGA, Buy Rite Drugs, and Dixie Dandy in Wewahitchka.

The Sheriff’s Department is also doing a new toy drive. You can find drop off places at the St. Joseph Bay Golf Club, South Gulf County Fire Department, Gulf 2 Bay Construction, Port St. Joe Marina, Bay Breeze Antiques, Piggly Wiggly and Dollar General Market.

So let’s pull together to make this the best Christmas ever for the children in need of Gulf County.
