Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Sheriff Andy is coaxed into heading the fund-raising campaign for the children's charity established by Annabelle Silby (Lurene Tuttle), the wealthiest woman in Mayberry. Reasoning that charity begins his home, Andy scolds his son Opie for contributing a puny three cents to the charity. Andy soon discovers to his embarrassment that, in his own small way, Opie is actually the most charitable and generous person in town. First telecast November 28, 1960, "Opie's Charity" was written by Arthur Stander.
