Newton County Sheriff’s Office hosts annual Toy Ride

On Nov. 18, 2023, Sheriff Ezell Brown and the Newton County Sheriff’s Office hosted its annual Toy Ride at The Church Covington in Oxford, Georgia, an initiative to raise funds and receive toy donations for families in need of assistance during the holiday season. 

“I express my sincere gratitude and appreciation to the businesses, organizations and individuals — especially my staff — who contributed their time and efforts to this year’s Toy Ride,” Brown said. “Without you, we could not have succeeded in reaching our goals. I am forever grateful.”
