** Update ** For this event we can only accept new unopened toys. Thank you! The Marshall County Sheriff's Office is now collecting non perishable food items through December. As in years past, we will donate all food items to Bags of Hope Ministry here in Marshall County. Any money collected will go to Marcella's Kitchen. In years past some folks have wanted to donate toys, and while we always found kids throughout the year to give the gifts to, we never had a method of distributing the toys. This year, however, we will be donating the toys we collect to The Moses Basket, which is another awesome nonprofit in Marshall County who collects items for foster kids and families. These children are usually forgotten by many, and can be transitioning between caretakers during the holidays, but we know the folks at The Moses Basket will ensure your toy donations get to these kids. You can come to the Marshall County Sheriff's Office 24/7 to drop off any nonperishable food item, or toys, inside the cruiser parked in the grassy area in front of the office. If you are wanting to donate money, I ask that you deliver that to the office during business hours. We will also be setting up times for collections at local stores. Check Marshall County KY Sheriff's Office page for those updates.
