Christmas For Kids continues

Christmas for Kids, the annual collection of toys to ensure all children in Cabot School District have gifts for Christmas, is in full swing, organizer Bill Holden announced.

"We help families that need help during the Christmas holidays to make sure all children get toys, have a good Christmas and enjoy the spirit of the holiday," Holden said.

Last year, the Christmas for Kids committee helped about 1,000 children, Holden said. "It was all possible because the people of Cabot pulled together and gave of their time and money," he said.

"Once again, your help is needed," Holden said. Donations of new toys, as well as money, can be accepted until Dec. 19.

There will be drop boxes for toys at all Cabot School District campuses, and at Pine Street Animal Clinic, 803 South Pine; Fred’s, 207 South Second St.; and all Dollar General Stores in the school district area.

Christmas for Kids needs donations of new toys, or the funds to buy them. All donations go to children who live in the Cabot School District, Holden said.
