Updated at 11:30 a.m.: The annual holiday campaign that aids needy Texas County children began Monday in its quarters.
“Share Your Christmas” involves numerous organizations, businesses and individuals joining to help those less fortunate. This year’s headquarters is situated in the basement of the Houston Lions Club den on North U.S. 63. Hours are 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Applications are taken there.
Cases will be outlined beginning next week in the Houston Herald, which started the drive 26 years ago. Volunteer Pat Miller is the coordinator.
Miller said there is a need for new or good used children’s toys and clothing. Persons can stop by the ‘Share’ headquarters to adopt a family, too.
Monetary donations can be mailed to “Share Your Christmas,” P.O. Box 170, Houston, Mo. 65483, or they can be dropped by the Houston Herald on Grand Avenue in Houston.
For additional information, call 417-457-6075 or 417-967-3234, evenings.
