Donations made for Christmas Blessings

Lydia Rangel, Leah Hanks, Erica McCollister and Penny Lowrey prepare to load toys collected by the probation department to be donated to Christmas Blessings in this 2017 file photo.

Sign-ups for Christmas Blessings will be from 9 a.m. to noon on Friday, Oct. 18 at the First United Methodist Church Gym. 

Christmas Blessings provides Christmas gifts for needy Panola County Children. Parents need to bring their ID and identifying paperwork for each child they are signing up. Examples of identifying paperwork are birth certificates, social security cards, shot records, school records and insurance information. 

Sign-ups will continue at Mission Carthage in the weeks following Oct. 18, but space is limited so parents are strongly encouraged to attend this sign-up event. They are unable to sign-up anyone prior to Oct. 18.
