Toy drives this week

Staff Writer

Two well-known toy drives continue this week to accommodate those seeking to have the merriest of Christmas.
Toys for Tots officials will put smiles on the faces of area children this weekend in year two of the organization’s operation in Grenada.
According to Calbrina Woods, Toys for Tots coordinator in Grenada and Montgomery Counties, the toy distribution day is scheduled for Sunday, Dec. 15, from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Lewis Johnson Senior Citizens Complex.
“We’ve gotten everyone registered throughout the county, and we’re ready to give away toys,” Woods said. “Last year, we had approximately 900 children to receive toys, and we’re looking to do as many this year. The amazing part of it is that this is the second time this has been done in Grenada County.”
