The annual holiday campaign that aids needy Texas County children is under way.
“Share Your Christmas” involves numerous organizations, businesses and individuals joining to help those less fortunate. This is the 26th year since its launch by the Houston Herald.
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.
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.
This year, an angel tree is in place at Houston Wal-Mart. Persons can pick up an angel off the tree that has a wish for a child. The gift with the angel can then be returned to the store’s service desk.
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.
