CHIPLEY- Chipley native Corey Odom helped to sponsor the annual Washington County, Florida Sheriff’s Office Christmas ham giveaway, held right before Christmas.

Washington County Sheriff’s Office, in this annual event, allows deputies to visit homes and stop vehicles on local roadways to give away the treats.

The event put a smile on the faces of 50 local families this year, and all indications are that the event will continue.

The giveaway is just one more example of the outreach exhibited by Sheriff Kevin Crews and the Washington County Sheriff’s Office, in association with community partners.

Odom has participated in altruistic efforts such as this for many years in the region.

‘Thanks to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office for allowing us to be a part of this event this year’, said Odom. ‘It’s truly a blessing to give, especially at this time of year’.
