Thanks to the fundraising efforts of last year’s Mud Run and last month’s Poker Run the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office was able to completely furnish and entire cottage at the Boy’s and Girl’s Ranch. Chatham County Sheriff John Wilcher presented a check to the Georgia Sheriff’s Youth Homes in the amount of $20,066.94 which will go towards new beds, mattresses, dressers, work tables and living room furniture.
For over 20 years the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office has raised money for the Boy’s and Girl’s Ranch, part of the Georgia Sheriff’s Youth Homes. These are children who have been abuse, whose parents might be in jail or have substance abuse problems. The Sheriff’s Office is proud of its relationship with the Boy’s and Girl’s Ranch and enjoys raising the funds that not only went towards this gift and also the Christmas gifts we provide in December.
