The Tallapoosa County Sheriff’s Girls Ranch in Camp Hill serves as a foster home for 20 girls from abusive or abandonment situations, and it is supported by the sheriffs of Lee, Chambers and Tallapoosa counties. The ranch is located on Girls Ranch Road between Auburn and Lake Martin.

They need your help

The Girls Ranch cares for these 20 children on a budget of about $2 per day per girl which is pretty tough to do. This year, due to the current pandemic, they have not received as many donations as they normally do and are in dire need. One of the ways to help is to provide them with some of their daily essentials. The Lake Martin Dadeville Area Chamber is asking for help and is collecting the items below for the Ranch.

Canned goods
Dry, non-perishable foods

Paper Products
Paper towels
Toilet Paper
Paper Plates

Cleaning Supplies
