Columbia Parks and Recreation is seeking donations for the Annual Holiday Toys for Columbia's Youth toy drive.
While you are out shopping this holiday season, please pick up an extra toy for a low -income boy or girl. Toys can be dropped off at the Armory Sports Center (701 E. Ash), Parks and Recreation office (#1 South Seventh Street), Columbia City Hall (information desk), Gerbes on Nifong, Instant Imprints (1401 Forum Blvd Ste. 103), Aaron's (1000 W. Worley and 1812 Vandiver), or any Columbia fire station.
Monetary donations are also being accepted at the Parks and Recreation office. Donors will receive a letter of acknowledgement for tax deduction purposes.
Last year, more than 300 children were served by the program; each of them received at least three toys. This year, donations will be accepted until December 12.
For more information about being a donor or a recipient, please call Parks and Recreation at 874-7460.
