Donations needed for Christmas assistance in Perrysburg

PERRYSBURG TOWNSHIP, OH (Toledo News Now) -

A major giveaway is getting ready to kick off in Perrysburg Township. Hundreds of toys and food will be handed out.

Organizers for Operation Bread Basket say they still need help to make the giveaway a success.

For the past 35 years, Operation Bread Basket has been making Christmas wishes come true for families in Perrysburg and Perrysburg Township. The giveaway is set for Dec. 21, but before parents can haul the toys home, organizers are asking for more donations.

The program provides gifts for infants, children and teens, but this year, organizers say they are lacking presents for children ages 12-17.

"The parents are very grateful because that's what Christmas is all about, you know, the surprise, the happiness on Christmas morning," said organizer Sharon Upton.

Families will also get three bags of food, along with clothes to take home. Time is running out for families to apply for the assistance. Click here for more information.
