Prophetstown Lions Club Toys for Kids drive has begun. Each year the Lions help make the holidays a little bit brighter for those in need by helping to provide clothes and gifts, collected through Toys for Kids. Helping out is easy just look for the marked bins around and drop off a gift of clothes or a toy for anyone through high school age. Those items are then wrapped and unveiled on Christmas morning.
Need is once again expected to be high, so any and all gifts will help. Donations can be dropped off from now until through December 17th at the Prophetstown Park District, Prophetstown Post office, Hometown Hardware, 1st Gateway Credit Union or Country Financial. Mailed donations can be sent to P.O. Box 6, Prophetstown, IL 61277.
Christmas trees containing requested specific item tags can be found at Country Financial or the Park District for anyone to grab. Fulfilling these most wished about items can make for an extra joyous Christmas morning.
The wrapping of gifts will take place on December 18th and 19th in the Park District. Volunteers are welcome and needed.
