Churches and businesses around the Branson area are helping Love Inc., a non-profit, support families in need this holiday.
“We invite families that have registered with us to come shop in our toy store behind me,” said Adrianne Lucas, executive director of Love Inc. “They can shop for the children that they have according to age and gender and get some really nice brand new toys that have been donated to this program.”
On Monday, Love Inc. began hosting a Toys for Tots event at Our Lady of the Lake Parish in Branson where families in need shop for Christmas gifts for their kids.
“I know lots of families, including my own,” said Teresa Kumming, Shopper at Toys for Tots, “that have a hard time around this time and this is truly, truly a blessing.
Each family is escorted by a Toys for Tots volunteer, who shows them all of the items to choose from.
The event wraps-up today.
