Purpose The Sheriff's Office (CCSO) STAR of Hope program supports families in our community during the holiday season by providing Christmas to those in need. Fundraisers are held by County employees to raise money to support this great cause. During the 2010 holiday season on Christmas Eve, Santa and Mrs. Claus delivered food, clothes, and toys to 67 children in Camden County. STAR of Hope supported 47 families in 2011.
2012 was a great success! The Star of Hope program provided 110 children with clothes and presents as well as provided 23 families with dinner and food boxes during the holiday season. $9,100 was raised through donations and charity events throughout the community. Thanks to the County employees and citizens of our community several children were adopted.
"The STAR of Hope program is a chance for us, the county employees, to give back to the citizens of Camden County. The happiness on the faces of the children and their parents would not be possibe without the generosity of local citizens and businesses." ~ Kathy Johson
