Santa's Posse


What is Santa's Posse?

A partnership between the Clark County Sheriff’s Office and Rotary Clubs of Clark County to collect and distribute toys and food to make a special Christmas holiday for less fortunate families in our community.

In 1997, Santa's Posse was created as a way of contributing back to our community and to help families in need during the holiday season.

What started with delivery of food, gifts and personal care items to 43 families has now expanded to 550 families. We provide Christmas for over 1,700 children in our community in an effort to increase positive contacts between law enforcement officers and families.

Donations wrapped for delivery

Food boxes and gifts are delivered, prior to Christmas, by the Clark County Sheriff's Office; Rotary Clubs of Clark County; Fire District 6; Kindercare Learning Centers; and many volunteers.


Gift baskets are delivered prior to Christmas.          



How Can You Help?

Volunteers are needed to help wrap gifts and assemble food boxes. You can also make donations to Santa's Posse in the form of: new, unwrapped toys; non-perishable food; personal care items; and/or monetary donations.
