Toy Fund accepts new toy donations

For the past three decades plus, the Fayette Toy Fund “has provided a special Christmas for many boys and girls,” according to Susan Ingram of the Oak Hill Rotary Club, which has taken over the organization of the program.

The numbers have grown from a few children in Mount Hope in the first days of the drive’s creation by Kathryn Lancianese, to hundreds of children from all around Fayette County today in the program’s 32nd year.

“Each year at this time there is a great need in our community. Many children go without a toy at Christmas. The Fayette Toy Fund, Inc. wants to make Christmas a special time for the children in need in our community,” Ingram writes. “Please help us to continue to make Christmas a special time again this year.”

The Toy Fund’s annual Christmas party is set for Dec. 15 at the Lewis Community Foundation’s  Christian Community Center.

New unwrapped toys can be dropped off at the following local businesses:

Shoney’s, Oak Hill

Chase Bank, Oak Hill

United Bank, Fayetteville

Fayette County National Bank, Oak Hill and Ansted

Fayette County National Bank Mortgage office, Fayetteville

Bank of Mount Hope, Oak Hill and Mount Hope

Active Fitness Center, Oak Hill

Dollar Tree, Fayetteville

Dollar General, Oak Hill

Also, any monetary donations should be mailed to: Fayette Co. Christmas Toy Fund, Inc., c/o Oak Hill Rotary Club, PO Box 154, Oak Hill WV 25901.
