In addition to gifts requested by individuals and listed on tags, the Treasures for Children program is also taking donations of children’s books; new winter wear such as hats, gloves and scarves; popular items such as Rainbow Looms, Duck Dynasty merchandise, makeup kits, full-size bottles of body lotion and Monster High dolls; and monetary donations, which program volunteers will use to purchase gifts.
Items should be unwrapped and include a label showing they are for the Treasures for Children program. Drop off gifts at Treasure trees at either the Kmart or Walmart store in White Township.
