Mid South Riders, THP ride in Sheriff's Toy Run
Members of the Mid South Riders, the Dyer County Sheriff's Department, and the Tennessee Highway Patrol pose with a cache of toys donated during the annual Dyer County Sheriff's Toy Run this past Saturday. Dyer County Sheriff Jeff Box (second from right) hosted the event and escorted the riders to Caruthersville, Mo.
'We had a great run and good turnout despite damp conditions,' said Box.
The ride is done in partnership with the Sheriff's Fight Crime Invest in Kids Campaign. This campaign focuses on interacting with children at an early age and making a positive impression upon them. The toys will be donated to a Head Start program to be given to at-risk youth. Box stated they would continue to accept toy donations for the program up until Christmas Eve at the Dyer County Sheriff's Dept. at 401 East Cedar St., Dyersburg.
