The Herrin Animal Hospital in Cassville and the Monett Veterinary Hospital are conducting their 13th annual Holiday Toy Drive.
Staff will be collecting toys at both hospitals until Dec. 13. The new toys will be donated to the Barry County Office of Ozarks Area Community Action Corporation (OACAC) and distributed to children in need in time for the Christmas holiday.
"It is always a special time for us when we load up the truck with toys every year," said Dr. Brent Herrin, owner of the hospitals. "My staff and I really enjoy participating in this and our friends and clients always amaze us with their generosity. We look forward to this every year."
Area residents are encouraged to help the children of Barry County by donating a new toy at either of the hospital locations.
