The Barnes County Sheriff’s Deputies Secret Santa program served up a tasty spaghetti dinner Monday, August 6, 2018 at the Valley City Eagles Club in Valley City to a hungry room full of people.
Although named the “Secret Santa,” the program, beginning in 2012, is a yearlong working charity that assists families and individuals who have had a major change in their life due to unexpected medical expenses, death of a family member, house fire and various other crisis events.
Secret Santa solely depends on donations and fundraising to operate each year. In 2017-18 over 58 Barnes County families/individuals have been assisted with this program.
Sheriff Randy McClaflin says, “The deputies are always their when the bad stuff happens and the Secret Santa program is a great opportunity for them to share in the good stuff with our community.”
