Sheriff’s Santa Program assists 44 families

LITTLE VALLEY — The 11th annual Cattaraugus County Sheriff’s Office Santa Program provided presents and dinner for 44 families this holiday season, nine more than last year, said Sheriff Timothy S. Whitcomb.

Partnering agencies raise funds and refer less-fortunate county families to the program, which served the most number of families this year since it began in 2004, Whitcomb said. He credited the county Department of Social Services with organizing this year’s program.

The program will hold fundraising events throughout next year. To contribute, contact Whitcomb at 938-9191, Ext. 2247. Contributions can be made payable to the Cattaraugus Region Community Foundation, 120 North Union Street, Olean, NY 14760. Please indicate in the memo section “Santa Sheriff’s Program.”
