Toys may be dropped off at your local post office, Shirley Public Library, Littleton High School, and Donelan's Supermarkets in Groton and Littleton, or brought to the pantry at 234 Barnum Rd. Devens during any open pantry session. (For hours, visit above web site.) Toys or gift cards may also be dropped off at Rogers Center Sun. and Mon. Dec. 7 and 8, and Saturday, Dec. 13, 10 a.m.-noon.

Would you be willing to have a neighborhood or company toy drive to bring a smile to the faces of these children? Just e-mail Karen or Deb at LFShop4YourKids@gmail.com and let us know about your drive. We can arrange to pick up toys from your location and, if you want, do a little "photo op" and publicity for you.
