The holiday season is in full gear and while most of us are busy trying to find the perfect gifts for the people on our lists, it's important to remember there are several individuals and families who are struggling to put food on the table and pay their bills, and they deserve the opportunity to enjoy the holiday season as well. The Chloe Randolph Organization in Henderson is looking to give those families, especially the kids, the opportunity to do that, but they need your help.

The Chloe Randolph Organization Toy Drive

The non-profit, which provides services and assistance to victims of domestic violence in the Henderson area, has proven itself to be a great community partner by branching outside of its main mission to help others in the area who are struggling for whatever reason. It is currently accepting donations of toys and other basic necessities such as toiletries and clothing for 10 families it has "adopted."

The organization is looking for new, unwrapped toys for boys, girls, and infants, and has donation boxes set up at select Dollar General stores in the Henderson area where those donations can be dropped off after you purchase them.

If you have any questions or need more information, contact the organization at 270-830-8688 or email

About The Chloe Randolph Organization

The Chloe Randolph Organization was founded by the parents of Henderson resident Chloe Randolph who was found dead in an apartment she shared with her husband, Mohamud Abdikadir, in March 2019. Abdikadir confessed to the crime a few weeks later, and after several continuances and rescheduled court dates, plead guilty to that charge along with two charges of tampering with evidence back in late September. He is currently in prison serving a 20-year sentence.

Determined to not let Chloe simply become another statistic, her parents and close friends saw her tragic death as motivation to help others who find themselves in dangerous relationships. In October 2020, they opened The Chloe Randolph Organization Advocacy Center at 324 1st Street in downtown Henderson. The Center provides a safe space for victims of domestic violence to get the assistance they need to escape the dangerous situation they find themselves in. That help includes counseling, legal assistance, and more.

If you or someone you know is in an abusive relationship and needs help, call the Advocacy Center at 270-830-9439. You can also reach them by e-mailing, or through the Contact form on their website.
