In 2012, Sheriff Ingram began the Sheriff’s Tidings of Joy program. Two students from each of the schools in Brunswick County are selected by their counselors or parent facilitators to receive Christmas needs and wishes through Tidings of Joy. Gifts are purchased, wrapped up, and delivered to the children’s homes prior to Christmas Eve.
Sheriff Ingram believes that all children should have a joyful and magical holiday season. This time of year can be a very sad and stressful time for parents who are struggling to make ends meet. Sheriff Ingram’s desire is to ease that burden so that these families can enjoy the holiday season, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.
