PEORIA (25 NEWS) - A local community center is gathering toys to give to kids in need this Christmas - and they could use your help.

The Holiday Giving Campaign is hosted Familycore. Program director Ron Tyler says its grown bigger and better every season, and anyone can donate gifts, gift cards, or money to help thousands of kids receive a present this year.

Volunteers are on hand to wrap and distribute gifts, and Tyler says they served more than 15,000 families in 2020.

“We are just so grateful for any donation of time, talents, or gifts. We are just here to continue to make our community strong by strengthening families,” Tyler said.

If you’d like to donate a gift or learn more about Familycore’s services, visit the facility at 330 Southwest Washington Street in Peoria.
