Toys for Kids program helps less fortunate celebrate Christmas

Marissa Freireich
Williams-Grand Canyon News Reporter

Some of the community's less fortunate children will have something under the Christmas tree this year thanks to the Williams Lions Club's Toys for Kids program.

The program provides gifts that community members donate for needy children ages 12 and younger.

Cards with the children's names are available on Christmas trees at National Bank of Arizona, North Country HealthCare and the Williams Ranger District.

Those interested in donating can pick a card, buy a toy suitable for the child selected, wrap the gift and return it to the location where it was selected by Dec. 17. People may also make a cash donation or donate an unwrapped gift.

Williams Lions Club members will deliver the gifts to the children's homes before Christmas, said organizer Jackie Haugen.

"The parents are always very appreciative," Haugen said. "They're very thankful."

The Williams Lions Club has put on the Toys for Kids program for about 50 years. The community usually provides gifts for about 100-140 children each year through the program.

Haugen said the Williams Lions Club appreciates all of the support the community provides for the Toys for Kids program.

"It's one program where you can touch the lives of children," Haugen said. "Many of these children would not be receiving a Christmas gift if it weren't for the Williams Lions Club program."

More information about Toys for Kids is available from Haugen at (928) 635-5242.
