ALBANY, GA (WALB) – As his eagle scout project, Andrew Bode asked people to donate toys and books for kids visiting families at Wilson Hospice house. He says he's been please with everyone's willingness to help.

"I came out here earlier this summer and saw that the people really needed some stuff to make their time out here better, and so me and Mrs. Patty Woodall talked it over and we decided that a toy and book drive would be a good way to help the people out here," Andrew said.

He's collected roughly 90 toys and more than 100 books, some are for hospice patients themselves. The drive will last through December 30th.

If you would like to help, you can place new or gently-used toys and books at donation receptacles at Avalon United Methodist Church, Covenant Presbyterian Church, Sherwood Christian Academy, and Willson Hospice House.
