Christmas for Children, our annual toy drive for children in foster care, comes to a close this Saturday. Thanks to Papa John's Pizza and Ranch & Home, we're hosting a drop-off event at Kennewick's Ranch & Home (on Columbia Center Blvd. starting at 8 a.m. Dec. 14).

Buy a new, unwrapped toy and come drop it off. You can even purchase on inside Ranch & Home if you wish. We'll be standing outside with our tents and a giant box wrapped like a present! Come say hello and help every child have a good Christmas.

For those of you who don't know, Christmas for Children toy drive started several years ago when someone began visiting foster kids with a social worker. While performing the service they were asked to do, they noticed how few possessions -- let alone toys -- kids in foster care had. That prompted them to start this toy drive.

Drop off underwear, socks, shoes, coats -- whatever you think they might need -- and toys for children of all ages.
