  Sheriff Brown photoNewton County Sheriff's Office Host its 17th Annual Toy Ride and Toy Giveaway

Newton County Sheriff’s Office hosted its 17th Annual Toy Ride on December 12, 2015 to raise funds and toys during the Christmas Holiday for families less fortunate. The community showed an overwhelmingly amount of support.  Over 250 riders and donors arrived at the Kmart Shopping Center in Covington to participate in the Toy Ride. It was heartwarming to watch the riders line up for kick stand and see the bike line stretched over a mile long.

There are no words that can express the gratitude for the loyalty of the citizens of Newton County and NCSO is inspired by the dedication and generosity of donors who answer to the call to give again and again.

Sheriff Ezell Brown states, “I personally want to thank those who made a contribution no matter how large or small, you made a contribution.
Newton County Sheriff’s Office Annual Toy Give Away

Christmas is the time of the year when love and giving is demonstrated in abundance and that is no exception for Sheriff Ezell Brown. He considers it an honor to help the families and children of Newton County who are less fortunate. Each year we receive more applications for Christmas assistance and NCSO works even harder to provide for the children. This year along with the Salvation Army and Solid Rock Baptist Church more than 800 families and 1000 children had a very Merry Christmas. That is more than 3 times the amount of children served last year. Members of NCSO worked tireless hours to make sure the children we were ask to serve was able to wake up Christmas morning with gifts underneath the tree.

 
NCSO Gives to Georgia Youth Homes for Christmas

Sheriff Brown and staff along with local key club members donated toys to the youth that reside at Cherokee Estates Youth Home on December 11, 2015 and the Boys Ranch Youth Home on December 17, 2015. “It was a pleasure seeing the smiles on the children’s faces as we brought in the gifts. My heart just melted and I was overwhelmed with joy to know that they would enjoy Christmas this year. In that moment I was taken back to my childhood and remembered how it felt to wake up on Christmas Day and eagerly unwrap the gifts,” states Sheriff Brown



 
Sheriff Ezell Brown Extends A Special Thanks to AKA Sorority

Sheriff Brown and the Newton County Sheriff’s Office would like to thank the ladies of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority (Chi Tau Omega Chapter) who joined helping hands and warm hearts with Reverend Clara Lett and Rainbow Covenant Ministry to ensure that more than 450 hats, scarfs, mittens and socks were given to families participating in the monthly food distribution.

An additional 150 seasonal wraps were placed on the Christmas tree in the jail lobby for children of incarcerated parents. Through this collaborative effort an additional 500 children were able to enjoy the Christmas Holiday.
Shake Your Sheriff’s Hand Initiative

Sheriff Ezell Brown was one of the Sheriffs in the State of Georgia selected to participate in the Georgia Sheriff’s Association Initiative media campaign, “Shake Your Sheriff’s Hand”. With a lot of negative press and views on law enforcement this initiative serves as a much needed campaign as an effort to encourage public support of men and women who serve and protect the citizens of Georgia. The campaign will be aired throughout the State of Georgia.

A Special Thanks to All NCSO Supporters and Donors

“There is no place like Newton County”, states Sheriff Brown, “It is an honor and privilege to live and serve in a community where citizens are so eager to give.” That being said, the Newton County Sheriff’s Office would like to thank all those who gave on so many levels. Not only did we have local businesses, community leaders, organizations, and churches who donated to support our annual Christmas events. We also had citizens and families to give donations to our Deputies. One of those donating families is the Kelly family who generously donated care packages to each Deputy who serve and protect in the communities of Newton County. We appreciate this kind gesture from the bottom of our hearts. Thank you again, Guadalupe, Jeremiah, Katherine and Amber Kelly.
