Grady County’s Help Agency helped to make sure many local children will receive a toy for Christmas thanks to the charitable organization’s annual holiday project last week.
There were 26 volunteers who helped make the event a success on a cold Thursday morning, some guiding traffic, others making sure families received the right groceries and toys.
“Although this year’s project had a low number of clients compared to years past, due, no doubt, to COVID, it was a big success and nearly 100 children received toys for Christmas,” said Cindy Johnson, Help Agency treasurer. “A variety of food, including hams, plus paper goods, were given and received in good cheer.”
Johnson said this project is possible due to the generosity of individuals and organizations who contributed money and toys to the Help Agency.
