Toys for Kids to help over 200 in our area

Christmas Gifts

Now sponsored by the Marshall County Rotary Club, the Toys for Kids program assists between 150 and 250 children each Christmas season, offering parents the opportunity to place clothing and toy items under the tree. The annual cost of the program typically varies between $13,000 and $20,000. This year, the club is preparing to serve 211 children at a cost of more than 21,000. Donations and sponsorships from the community help to offset program costs which are covered largely by the Rotary's annual fundraising auction. The program will now be receiving an additional outfit and/or an additional toy rather than shoes and undergarments as in years prior. For more information on how you can help, call Cindy Riley at (270) 395-5133. (Stock Photos; Updated: 11:22 am, Tuesday)
