Spirit of Giving toy drive wrapping up
MAYFIELD, KY- Scanning the shelves, Hillary Piper checks out several action figures.
"He's still in the toy stage, but not really," she said of her 11-year-old son.
On Thursday, Piper's biggest challenge was finding the right toy for her son. Just a few days before it was how to afford it.
"I've always loved the holidays but this one's been a little stressful," she admitted.
Piper is a full-time college student and is not working. She says the holidays would not have been so bright for her 3 kids this year.
"They wouldn't have a Christmas," she said.
But thanks to Mayfield's Community Christmas Connection they will. Volunteers tell us the toys on their shelf are due in part to 'The Spirit of Giving.'
"The things we got yesterday are what's on our shelves today. This is what you're seeing from the generosity of givers," volunteer Lori Beyer said.
They are givers Hillary Piper has never met but is grateful for.
"It's going to be a Merry Christmas," she said.
