2017 Mission of Hope Toy Drive at WKYT

By  | 

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - We are packing our lobby and we hope WKYT viewers will join us! The WKYT Mission of Hope Christmas Collection is Thursday, December 7th at the WKYT studios at 2851 Winchester Road.

WKYT is collecting new toys, clothes and hygiene items so the Mission of Hope can help our less fortunate neighbors this holiday season. These items will be distributed to children at elementary schools in some of the neediest eastern Kentucky counties. For some children, this is the only Christmas they will have.

While its first campaign in 1996 helped 150 children, Mission of Hope is preparing to help over 18,000 children and their families this year with food, hygiene, clothing and toys. Mission of Hope is a ministry that helps children in both Kentucky and Tennessee.

At Christmas, Mission of Hope focuses on new items only because many of the children and families it assists only receive new items at this time of year.

To help us spread the Hope you can also donate securely, online via PayPal. We are a fully licensed 501c3 non-profit charity.

If you have questions, want more information or to make donations by phone, please contact the Mission of Hope office at 865-584-7571 or by E-mail to info@missionofhope.org.
