Christmas Care Program collects toys for 480 children

Posted by wlpo on December 9, 2011

Donations to a program to give toys to children in La Salle and Peru were coming in slowly.  But some last minute generosity is helping 480 children receive Christmas presents this year.

Cameron Graper of Ax Church and Hope LP says things have turned out great and they have enough toys for the parents who signed up.

Approximately 1,000 toys are being distributed Friday and Saturday.  Graper doesn’t think that’s bad considering it’s their first year overseeing the Christmas Care Program.  In past years it was managed by the United Way.  Harvest Community Church in Peru is also involved.
