Several organizations in and around Evans are working to put on a toy drive for children of families affected by the September flooding.
Residents can drop of toys or cash donations from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. today at the Sam’s Club Parking Lot, 3247 23rd Ave. The donations will come together at a Christmas party from noon to 5 p.m. Dec. 21 at the Evans Recreation Center, 1100 37th St., where children can pick out a toy or two. The first 200 families also will get a free photo with Santa on that day.
The Evans Chamber of Commerce, city of Evans, Toys for Tots, U.S. Marine Corps, Young Marines, Anadarko Petroleum Corp., Photogenix Etc. and Zac’s Legacy Foundation are sponsors.
