Rhea County Sheriff Mike Neal and Chief John Argo would like to thank the community for coming together for their toy drive.
The Grinch also made an appearance during the fundraiser. Instead of trying to steal the holiday cheer, he formed his own team to compete with Team Santa in raising funds to help buy Christmas gifts for children in need.
Both teams raised a total of $1,359.56 which the Rhea County Fair matched and donated a total of $3000 along with some toys.
The Rhea County Sheriff’s Department is thankful that everyone came together to help the children of the county. Many Christmases were made merrier by their contributions.
