Putnam County FOP Santa Drop Accepting Donations

The Putnam County chapter of the Fraternal Order of Police is graciously accepting donations for their annual “FOP Santa Drop”. Nearly 20 years have passed since the first child was chosen to receive the holiday gifts, and the need in Putnam County has only grown. One hundred percent of all donations, go directly towards the purchase of gifts for children of the families who are chosen. Applications are screened to ensure that the program helps the neediest families and that duplications in programs arent happening. Once the screening has been finished, the officers go shopping to make Christmas dreams come true for children who might not have had a Christmas otherwise. To help Santa Drop this year, donations can be dropped off at Greencastle Police Department. If you know of someone in need, applications can also be picked up at Greencastle Police Department during normal business hours. The application deadline is December7. For questions, please contact Assistant Chief Brian Hopkins at 765- 848-1539.
