Secret Santa again helps others

TROY — Miami County Sheriff’s Office deputies were recently anonymously given 10 Christmas cards, each containing a $20 bill, to give out to those in need or struggling this Christmas season, according to Sheriff Dave Duchak.

This marks at least the fourth year the secret Santa has anonymously provided cards and money for deputies to hand out. Deputies were given the cards on Friday to be handed out during their shift.

Duchak said, “It’s nice to be able to give out some good news!”
