Sheriff Wes Tripp’s program called Benefitting the Kids supports the children of Halifax County by raising funds to be used for the Deputy School Supply Drive, the Deputy Toy Drive, and the annual Junior Deputy Camp. The school supply drive collects items to be given to Halifax County schools for dissemination to less fortunate children. The Deputy Toy Drive collects items for less fortunate families to ensure every child has a Merry Christmas. Junior Deputy Camp is held at the Halifax County 4H Rural Life Center in Halifax each summer at no cost to the children of Halifax County. This enables less fortunate families to send their children to a summer camp with exciting and educational activities while building positive relationships with law enforcement.
Anyone wishing to donate items or funds for Benefitting the Kids is encouraged to contact Sheriff Wes Tripp at (252)578-4003.
