Toys, toys and more toys filled tables, lined the walls and jutted from the corners of a room at a local ministry waiting to be a child’s Christmas present.
The toy drive at Agape Outreach Ministries culminated with more than 3,000 toys and children’s clothing to be distributed Dec. 19-21 to needy children. The ministry also gave food bags to families in need.
Chatty Hill, a volunteer at the ministry, said the abundance of toys received is an example of the generosity of the people in McDuffie County.
“The people of this area have love in their hearts for children and it shows that they have the blessing of the Lord,” she said. “They were able to, in spite of their own personal shortcomings, make a sacrifice for the children in the area.”
