Now, here's how you can help. First, take the initiative to donate your time or service to the charity of your choice.
Donations to Love In the Name of Christ can be dropped off at Brookshire Brother's Fresh Harvest store on University Drive through December 21st.
To make it easy, toy and food purchases are already bagged up, or you can bring your own.
You can also help out in other ways, said Love INC's Homeless Prevention Coordinator, Kenyatta Brown. "You can help with the wrapping of the gifts and their distribution to families. Many of our clients don't have transportation, so we need to make deliveries."
There's also a gift wrapping party on Wednesday from noon to 8:00 p.m. Gift distributions will be Wednesday and Thursday beginning at noon. Please call ahead at 569-8555 between 9:00 a.m. and noon to coordinate times. Both events will take place at Nacogdoches Bible Fellowship on East Main.
North Street Church of Christ will accept toy donations through tomorrow.
Empty Stocking donations can be made through Child Protective Services in Nacogdoches, and you can drop off a donations at the Women's Shelter anytime.
