Hiway 80 Rescue Mission seeks toy donations to help needy children

Thursday, December 8, 2011 - 12:46pm

Longview, TX — Already the mission has received a record number of applications. Last year we served 350 families, and handed out 3000 gifts to low-income children. This year we have requests to help just as many if not more. We also will provide gifts for 200-250 homeless adults at a Christmas Eve party. At a time when the mission is serving record numbers of people seeking help, donations have been down. The Mission is seeking donations of toys for children and teens, personal hygiene items/adult gifts, and food.

There are many ways to help.
Donate gifts/ host a toy drive.
