Toython Helps but More Donations Needed

Even with the toys given during the 2012 Toython this weekend, officials with Wesley House say they're still in desperate need of donations for Christmas.

Donations were down a little, due to the economy.

Wesley House says it has about half the toys usually donated, with twice the need.

"At this point, as we're beginning to start packing the bags this week, we really don't know what we need," said Renee Boatner of Wesley House. "We can't really tell you to bring balls or bikes or whatever, because we don't really know yet to match the children up with the toys. So if they just want to give financially, that way we can go out and buy the toys we do need."

If you'd like to make a donation, you may bring it or send it to Wesley House, 1520 8th Avenue, Meridian, MS 39301.
