PINEVILLE - Fundraising begins next month for an annual holiday toy and coat drive in Wyoming County.
Volunteers for the Wyoming County Toy Fund will be collecting money and used toys starting Friday. Donation jars are being placed in local businesses. Folks can also drop off toys at any county fire department.
Volunteer Keri Maynard said many children would not have a Christmas if not for the Toy Fund. "As you're buying your kids' Christmas gifts, go through their old stuff [and] bring it to the toy fund," she urged.
Folks interested in volunteering can meet at the former Pineville Middle School every Monday from 6 to 9 p.m. to help clean the used toys. Organizers say all of the money donated goes directly to buying toys for needy kids.
