HANCOCK - Christmas for Others will accept gifts of canned and boxed goods for those in need through Sunday, Dec. 16 at St. Thomas' Episcopal Church.
Used coats for children and adults are also needed by that date, which is also the deadline for those purchasing a new toy for a child.
All may be placed at the baptismal font in the church.
The Rev. Allan Weatherholt has a list of local children assigned to the parish.
Those interested in helping may purchase and wrap a new toy (suggested price is $15 to $20) for one of the youngsters.
See Weatherholt for a name and identification tag to be placed on the package.
