The Hopkins County Blue Santa Program received a $1,000 donation from Hopkins County Masonic Lodges and a matching $1,000 donation from BT Medical.
The program this year plans on distributing gifts to 309 kids. The toys will be distributed to families later today.
Clay Bartley presented the donation on behalf of the Masonic Lodges(Hopkins County, Cumby, and Sulphur Bluff).
Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Tanner Crump said, “Our needs this year are greater than they were in the past. This year businesses and groups have come through and met those needs.”
Blue Santa is still accepting donations for last minute needs and rollover funds will be put to use next year. Donations can be dropped of at Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office.
