BCSD - Secret Santa 2023

October 14, 2023

Dear Secret Santa Supporter,
Please help us deliver hope to a child in need this holiday season. From now through December 4, we will be collecting monetary donations to create gift bags for some of Bennington County's children in need, from generous donors like you. The goal of our Secret Santa program is to collect five thousand dollars through financial contributions to purchase new, unwrapped toys and distribute them to identified children’s families during this holiday season.

We welcome all levels of contributions. Given today's challenging economic conditions, we recognize that our work together is even more critical because of the sheer number of families experiencing financial hardship. If you are able to help a child this holiday season by donating a monetary donation, please make the check out to the Bennington County Sheriff's Department and write the "Secret Santa program" in the check's memo section.

Please mail your generous donation to:
Bennington County Sheriff’s Department
Attention: Secret Santa Program
P.O. Box 4207
Bennington, Vermont 05201-4207

If you would rather donate a new, unwrapped toy instead of a cash donation, please purchase and drop the toy off at one of our multiple partnering locations around Bennington. All sites are prepared to begin accepting toys on November 1st through December 4th. Please know toys are intended for infants through children twelve years of age.

Toy drop-off locations are below:
Bennington County Sheriff’s Department
Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1332 – Bennington, VT.
American Legion Post 13 – Bennington, VT.

Your generosity will help to ensure that each participating child will have a joyous holiday season.
