The Catoosa County Sheriff's Office is now accepting names of children in need for their annual "Stocking Full of Love" toy drive.

Each year, deputies accept names of needy children from Catoosa County schools, civic organizations, and state agencies to provide toys for them on Christmas.

In 2015, officials say 1,200 children received toys due to the program and generosity of Catoosa County residents.

The Sheriff's Office is collecting names of children between the ages of 12 months to 14 years who will benefit from the program.

Officials say names will only be accepted Nov. 28th through Dec. 9th, between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.

After Dec. 9th, toys will be sorted and additional toys will be purchased with monetary donations.

The Catoosa County Sheriff's Office is asking anyone who would like to donate to bring them to the office, or contact the Sheriff's Office to have the items picked up at your residence or business.

Sheriff Sisk stresses that the program is in great need of toy and monetary donations for the 2016 program.
