The Pulaski County Human Services, Inc. are once again holding their annual Toy Store. This year’s event will take place on Saturday, Dec. 10, from 9 a.m. to noon. Donations of toys, winter gear, food, and other items are greatly appreciated, and may be donated to the Pulaski County Human Services prior to the event. Anyone in need that has registered and qualified will get to “shop” on Saturday for items for their children, and those that have not signed up can still drop by and receive the assistance they need.
The Toy Store provides toys, clothes, food, and other items to people that have signed up for assistance for the holidays. Pulaski County Human Services, Inc. have been holding the food store annually for several years, and they don’t plan on stopping.
Elderly Services Specialist Rosetta Podell told WKVI that there are several different ways people can help out with the organization.
“If you’d like to sponsor a family and buy clothes for them, you can contact us and we’ll get you the agents of the children and their clothes sizes. And we can always use monetary donations for our food baskets as well,” Podell said.
Of course, donations aren’t the only thing the organization needs for the Toy Store. Volunteerism is a necessary thing, and Podell says that anyone interested in volunteering is more than welcome to come by.
“We have several people lined up to come, but the more people that we have the more smooth it goes so anybody that would like to stop by, we’ll put them to work!” she said.
