Toys needed for foster children

Lee County law officers and civic leaders need your help to make sure foster children have a merry Christmas.

The Leesburg Police Department, Lee County Sheriff's Office and Chamber of Commerce are collecting unwrapped toys and money for Lee County's Division of Family and Children Services.

Chief Charles Moore says it's a tradition that will help 20 foster children this year.

"They give us what you call a wish list from all the foster homes and what the kids want, what age group they are. And what we started doing, people make monetary donations to us sometimes, the older kids, we'll buy gift cards for them, we'll put their name on it. But it stays in Lee County, that's the main thing," said Chief Moore.

Organizers are asking for toys for children from 3 months to 14 years-old.

The toys can be dropped off at Dollar Generals or Fred's in Lee County, the Sheriff's Office, Police Department or Chamber, until December 19th.

For more information, call Chief Moore at 229-759-6465.
