Deserving kids to benefit from toy/clothes drive

Those who make up the organization “Celebrate Christmas with a Hero” hope that during the holiday shopping season that you will take time to remember a child in need. Partnering with the city of Seneca, Christmas with a Hero will undertake its annual new toy and clothing drive starting Thursday, November 21. Between then and Saturday, December 14, you can drop items off at the Seneca City Hall between 8 am and 5 pm. According to the Celebrate Christmas with a Hero mantra, “The fundamental idea is that volunteers shop in advance for the children by purchasing items from Oconee County retailers in an effort to keep revenue in our own community. The children are screened by an established protocol and are referred to us through private, governmental, clergy affiliates, and others that are aware of needs.” Your donation can qualify for a tax credit. On request, a tax letter can be prepared by contacting Lt. Lisa Williams of Seneca Police at 864/885-2730.
