The Southampton Lions club is kicking off its 10th annual ‘Toys for Kids’ campaign. We collect new, unwrapped toys for kids up to 15 years old. ALL toys go to the Easthampton Community Center for distribution in the local community. Collection boxes are in the Southampton branches of Bank ESB and Polish National Credit Union, the Bank ESB branch on Main St, The Package Store, formerly in the Big Y plaza, now in the Hampton Ponds Plaza, and on the front porch of 30 Paul St, Easthampton. We are also pleased to partner with the Southampton Police department for their ‘Stuff a Cruiser’ event on the morning of December 14. For those who prefer, cash donations are accepted and converted to gift cards for teens. Checks can be made payable to the Southampton Lions Club. Calls can be made to Art at 413-626-1989 to arrange contribution pick ups. Thank you in advance for your help in making the holidays a little better for those less fortunate families!
