Coldwell Banker Sell Real Estate in Great Bend, along with Wal-Mart and Eagle Radio are joining forces to sponsor toy drives that will benefit the Christmas for Kids program at Saint Francis Community Services.

All the toys and funds from this drive will help the more than 181 children being served by Saint Francis in Great Bend and the surrounding area.

The toy drives will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 4, , and from noon to 3 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 12. Both drives will be at the Wal-Mart store entrances in Great Bend.

"They do great things in Central Kansas for displaced children ... many of whom get lost in the shuffle at Christmas time," said Roger Sell. He encourages everyone who can to take part.

Through Christmas for Kids, wishes are fulfilled for children in Saint Francis foster care, adoption, and family preservation programs. Christmas for Kids provides presents to children and teens, ages newborn to 18, who may otherwise go without a gift this holiday season. Toys or cash donations are welcome. Toys or cash gifts can also be left at the Coldwell Banker Sell Real Estate office at 4000 10th Street during normal business hours any Monday thru Friday.
