Supporting Virginia’s Sheriffs & Deputies

Sheriff Karen Bowden and the Hampton Sheriff’s Office staff were busy this holiday season donating time, food, and gifts to those in need. The Hampton Sheriff’s Office partnered with the Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign as deputies and staff rang the bell at both entrances of Walmart. The Hampton Sheriff’s Office raised hundreds of dollars during the 7 hours event.

The Hampton Sheriff’s Office also donated hundreds of dollars and gifts for 6 children in need as a part of the Angel Tree program. We are grateful to be able to continue our 24-year partnership with the Salvation Army and will continue in the years to come.

Alongside the partnership with the Salvation Army, the Hampton Sheriff’s Office provided gifts for our Adopt-A-Seniors program members (30 seniors are listed). The seniors were presented with a holiday gift bag which included a 2023 calendar, snack bags, candle, Hampton Sheriff’s Office blanket, and a letter from the Sheriff.

The Hampton Sheriff’s Office partnered with the Peninsula Agency on Aging (PAA) to deliver seniors with hot lunches, gift bags, and blankets to members of their Congregate Dining Club. We wanted to show our seniors how much we care about them this holiday season.

Lastly, the Hampton Sheriff’s Office deputies and staff provided 180 pounds of canned goods to the Virginia Peninsula Foodbank which provided 150 meals for families in need.
