First State offices in Martin, Sharon and Greenfield are hosting a toy drive for We Care Ministries in Martin.
The toys that are collected will be provided to needy children during the holidays. We Care Ministries has expressed a special need for the following items: basketballs, footballs, soccer balls, cute lamps for girl’s rooms age 11-18, toys for 5-year-old boys and girls and toys for 9-year-old boys and girls. People wishing to contribute may bring the items to any of the First State offices in Martin, Sharon or Greenfield. Donations will be accepted from now until Nov. 30.
“First State will be able to provide the much needed items to this charity because of the community’s kindness,” said Sam Lewallen, community bank president of First State Bank in Martin.
“Families in need will greatly appreciate the generosity of our community and this will give them hope for the future.”
