The Eastside Community Ministry is starting to take applications today for their brand new Christmas toy drive this year. The drive is set up to benefit teenagers ages 13 and up in need of Christmas gifts. The public is encouraged to donate gifts as well and the ministry is asking for anything ranging from cologne to gift cards. The presents are available to anyone who wants to apply, but there are some income guidelines. The deadline to apply for gifts is Friday December 19th, and all gifts will be distributed Monday December 22nd.
