The Halifax County Deputy Toy Drive will be finishing up next Monday with a final delivery to the Enfield Lions Club.

Today, Sheriff Wes Tripp and Chuck Marsh of First Media Radio made a delivery of more than 40 large boxes of toys.

“My trailer was full,” Tripp said. “We still have bicycles to carry.”

While the project comes to a close Monday for this year, Tripp said, “I’m not going to turn any donations away.”

The sheriff’s office is also getting calls from the northern end of the county — Halifax, Littleton, Roanoke Rapids and Weldon — for assistance. “We still have toys at the office,” the sheriff said. “People who need them can call me for an appointment to pick up toys as long as they last. It’s an extra large boxful.”

The sheriff’s number is 252-578-6761.

Tripp said this year’s event has been the largest thus far and the plan is to make next year’s event bigger. “Our partnership with First Media Radio has been astronomical.”
