MT. VERNON, IL — Jefferson County Toys for Kids is asking for the public’s help.
The group says it’s still short quite a few gifts especially for older kids. They say they’re short 35 gifts for girls ages 10-12. ($30 value), 16 gifts for boys 10-12, 6 gifts for girls 13-17 and 6 gifts for boys aged 13-17. They are also short 3 stocking stuffer gifts for boys 7-9 and 4 for boys aged 13-17 ($10 value). If anyone can purchase a toy or toys to fulfill these needs, they can be delivered to their giveaway location at 2325 Benton Rd. Tuesday evening by 5:30. Unfortunately there is a rush to get these today because they will have to go buy whatever they are lacking tonight.
