For 47 years, the Ted Whitley Optimist Club of Hillsboro and 1560 KHBR Radio have teamed to co-sponsor "Christmas for Kids."
The program is unique, as it not only provides toys for children, but also clothing that is needed during the winter months.
This year, the club expects to provide gifts and clothes to over 250 children.
Over the years, many churches, organizations and individuals have responded with checks or cash donations or boxes full of toys.
The goal during this holiday season is to make sure that as many children as possible have at least two gifts to unwrap on Christmas morning.
Collection boxes for donations are available in Hillsboro at: Hillsboro Ford
Walmart Supercenter Eagle Drug
Hillsboro Unified Tae Kwon Do
Hillsboro Area Chamber of Commerce
Applications to be a recipient of Christmas for Kids are at the HISD Admin Building at 121 Franklin St. and due Dec. 8th by noon.
