Melvin Hart Memorial Toy Drive collecting names

The Melvin Hart Memorial Toy Drive, sponsored by Falmouth Christian Church and Pendleton County Search & Rescue, will once again be collecting items for the less fortunate this holiday season.

The program serves children from Pendleton County who are ages 12 and under. Those families that sign-up for assistance will receive a box of toys for each child on their list on the scheduled pickup day. These toys will not be wrapped so please plan accordingly if you are bringing your children with you.

Christmas assistance sign-up deadline is Friday, December 18, 2015. When signing up, please provide parent's name, address, phone number, children's names, ages, and gender.

To be eligible for assistance send a postcard with the requested information to Mark Hart, 202 East Fourth Street, Falmouth, KY, 41040.

For donations, questions or additional information, you can call Falmouth Christian Church at 859-654-2741 or Mark Hart at 859-654-4278.

Gift pickup will be held from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. on Wednesday, December 23 at Falmouth Christian Church.
