The Kentucky Sheriffs’ Boys and Girls Ranch is asking for donations for its summer camp. The items can be dropped off at the local sheriff’s office. The Lyon County Sheriff’s office is located at 500 West Dale Avenue, Suite 100. The phone number is 270-388-2311.

Wish list items include:

• spray waterproof sunscreen 100 SPF

• spray sunscreen 50+ SPF

• wall outlets

• contractor trash bags — 55 gallon

• styrofoam divided oblong plates

• disposable cups (6-8 ounces)

• 9V, AA and AAA batteries

• masking and duct tape

• Lysol laundry sanitizer

• plastic forks and spoons

• Five girl bikes (for camper of the week)

• Gold Bond powder

• Bandages (ACE larger size)

• Toothache relief meds

• First-aid tape (for bandages)

• Swimmer’s ear drops

• Eye and ear drops

They ask if possible that sunscreen be spray sunscreen, as lotion tends to wash off in the pool and doesn’t process well with the chemicals.

They also are asking for basic arts and crafts items such as beads, googly eyes, crayons, paints, markers, brushes, construction paper, scissors, pencils, etc.

They have backpacks that they are requesting goody bag items for: candy, school supplies, stickers, coloring books, small toys, etc.

There is an Amazon wishlist for people who wish to purchase online. Items will ship directly to the camp. It can be viewed by searching “Wish List for Ky. Sheriffs’ Ranch” on
