Toys for Falls County kids ongoing
Each year the children of Falls County are shown the true meaning of the Christmas Spirit with the Toys for Kids drive.
Donations began acceptance on Monday, November 16 at various locations around town. The Falls County Samaritan House and The Petal Patch Flower will be accepting donations during all open hours. On Fridays, the Marlin Fire Department will be in the Walmart Parking lot from 10 a.m. until 12 p.m. accepting donations. All toys donated must be unused and still in the package. Children are aged 0-13, so toys for various ages are appreciated.
For those who feel they may need assistance in achieving their child’s dream Christmas, applications for participation are available at the Petal Patch, located near FCHC on Coleman St and at the Falls County Samaritan House, located on Live Oak St in Downtown Marlin. The deadline to have them turned in is Dec. 11 at 12 p.m. No late application will be accepted. Must be residents of Falls County to apply.
