To the Editor:

The holiday season is upon us once again, and the Polk County Sheriff’s Office has been busy for several weeks planning the annual Polk County Toy Run on Saturday ,Nov. 26.

This annual event brings a large number of riders together as they parade through Saluda, Tryon, Landrum, Green Creek, Mill Spring and end up in Columbus dropping off their toys on the steps of the historic courthouse.

However, their participation is just one part of ensuring all Polk County children have a reason to smile this holiday season.

Your assistance is needed as well.

We are selling Polk County Toy Run T-shirts at the sheriff’s office ( in orange or white).

Monetary donations also help tremendously with our efforts, and can be dropped off at the PCSO. Of course, we always welcome new toy donations as well. Feel free to drop those off at the sheriff’s office at your convenience as well.

–Donald Hill, Sheriff
