Gabe Allen and Landry Steedley, of Folkston, passed out goodie bags to the Folkston Police Department and Charlton County Sheriff’s Office to show their support for local law enforcement.

“Charlton has been and will be our community. The place where we will grow old, retire and continue to raise our kids,” said Cici Allen. “Our goal as parents is to teach our children to love and respect their community, along with the people who make it a great place to live. What better way to do so than to get them involved in loving the people in it and understanding what they do every day to serve us?”

Gabe is the four-year-old son of Robby and Cici Allen. Landry is the four-year-old son of Jay and Kristen Steedley.

“This is the beginning of many ideas we have planned throughout the community,” said Allen, “We decided with all the negativity in the media involving officers, it would be a great start to begin with them by letting them know that we support the great men and women who protect and serve our community.”
