BECKLEY, WV (WOAY) – As we near the holiday season, some people are already in the giving spirit.
Since Mac’s Toy Fund will not hand out toys this year, Helping Hands steps up to make sure kids still have a Christmas. The organization’s treasurer says Beckley Area Foundation will provide grants to buy toys to hand out to families in need.
“If you can spend 15 to 20 minutes with a family with maybe two little children, you see the expressions on their faces and also on the parents faces,” said Howard Mollohan. “Otherwise, they wouldn’t be able to go out and buy toys. It would be a very blue Christmas. Just being able to watch them is satisfaction enough to know that what you’re doing is a helpful thing.”
Helping Hands is always in need of volunteers. The organization will not accept toy donations due to coronavirus concerns.
