Operation REACH president Bobby Collier said city police and firefighters raised $5,858 during road blocks this past weekend.
Collier said that brought the total raised so far to around $31,000.
REACH is an acronym for Roane Enriches Another Child’s Holiday. The annual program takes less fortunate children Christmas shopping. Collier said the goal this year is to raise $125,000.
The Roane County Sheriff’s Office plans to raise funds for REACH this week by turning the old county jail in Kingston into a haunted house.
