Holiday Heroes Program:
Working through the Red Cross, local families, organizations, and businesses collect toys, clothing, and other gifts during the holiday season for needy children in the Wayne County community. Community residents that have a need in December will have an opportunity to “shop” for holiday gifts for their children free of charge during select days. Eligible shoppers must reside in Wayne County and are required to show one picture ID, proof of current residency, and birth certificates of all children in the home. For details, call 315-331-3783.
