The annual Christmas Toy Program, “Civitan Santa,” jointly sponsored by the Minden Civitan Club and the Young Woman’s Service Club is in full swing.
Each year the local Civitan Club, with the help of the Young Woman’s Service Club, collects and distributes toys to needy children in the Minden – South Webster Parish area. Members of the Minden City Police Department and the Webster Parish Sheriff’s Department will deliver the toys just before Christmas.
Donated toys (new) may be delivered to the Minden Police Department or any Civitan member, and cash donations may be sent to the Minden Civitan Club at P.O. Box 95, Minden, LA 71058. Several businesses will also have drop boxes for toys.
Application forms may be picked up at the Minden City Police Department and the Webster Community Action offices. Applications will be considered for children through age 13.
In order to have all of the toys delivered by Christmas, all applications for assistance must be in the hands of the sponsors by December 12.
