Four children and Sheriff stand behind large christmas presents 

Christmas 2014

Help us Make it Better in 2015


Dear Citizens of Hempstead County,

It is time once again that we start thinking about Christmas and raising funds and Items for the girls at the Arkansas Sheriff’s Youth Ranch at Lake Degray.

We are starting today to collect items on each girl’s wish list and funds to help grant their wishes.

There are six girls at the Degray Campus ages 9, 12,13,14,15, and 17 each girl has sent me a wish list. If you would like to help fill their wish list you may contact me at the sheriff’s office or bring your Items by from 8am-4pm Monday – Friday until Monday December 21, 2015.

We will also accept can goods for and non-perishable food items for the house parents to use throughout the year.

If you would like to donate; Please make your check out to Hempstead County Sheriff’s Youth Ranch Christmas Fund. You may also mail to the following address; Hempstead County Sheriff James Singleton 312 South Washington Hope, Arkansas 71801.

Last year we received over $2,500.00 in cash donations and were able to grant all six girls their Christmas wish list.

We will deliver the items to the Girls on Christmas Eve.

May God Bless,

And from all of us here at the Sheriff’s Office MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!

Sheriff James Singleton, Hempstead County Sheriff
