Books-A-Million hosts toy drive for Hope Haven

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - If you are looking for a way to help a child in need this Christmas season, Books-A-Million has the solution. The book store, partnering with the Ice Girls from the Mississippi Surge and Papa John's, is sponsoring a book and toy drive through December 21 to help needy children in South Mississippi.

All donations will go directly to Hope Haven, a charity that helps children who have been displaced from their homes due to physical, mental or sexual abuse. Organizers say the donations coming from caring members of the community during this drive could be the only presents these children will see for Christmas.

Donations can be made at the Books-A-Million store in Edgewater Mall. For more information about the toy drive visit the store or call 228-594-6823. For more information about Hope Haven you can visit their website at or call at 228-466-6395.
