For some children, the gifts from the toy drive may be the only ones received for Christmas. Smith said, “We are so thankful for the toys and monetary donations. We would not be able to serve as many children as we do were it not for the hospital’s yearly donation.” She added that toy and financial donations are welcome year-round, particularly toys at the $10 price point and above. She also shared that they would welcome more business partners to the project.

Anyone interested in giving of their time, financial resources or toys to the drive may contact Jesup City Hall at (912) 427- 1313.
