Volunteers filled the Williams Middle School multipurpose room to sort nearly 650 boxes containing thousands of toys for needy children on Thursday, Dec. 20.

The group was preparing for the annual Brighter Christmas distribution scheduled for Sunday, Dec. 23 starting at 8 a.m. in the parking lot of Williams Middle School.

Food donations will be boxed on Saturday, Dec. 22, and given with the toys.

Nearly 1,750 children will receive toys from the Brighter Christmas this year.

Over 70 volunteers spent Thursday afternoon carrying boxes to the different stations around the multipurpose room where toys for children ranging from infant to13-years-old were sorted and boxed.
