Local News

CLINTON, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — A vendor mall in Clinton, Ind. wants to help spread cheer to children in need this holiday season.

North Side Pickers in Clinton will hold its “Christmas Open House” this weekend. The mall is partnering with the Marine Corps Reserve for a “Toys for Tots” drive.

Anyone who donates a new toy to the event will be entered into a drawing to win one of two $25 gift certificates to the shop.

The store will be collecting toys from Nov. 5 through Dec. 7, according to a news release. Event organizers said they hope to help families put a smile on kids’ faces.

“It’s difficult for families to make a decision between purchasing food and toys for their kids for Christmas,” Chad Davis, vendor at North Side Pickers, said. “So, we want to help out on the toy side if we can so they can use their funds for other things that are important to support their families.”

The “Christmas Open House” will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Nov. 5 and 6 and from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Nov. 7. The shop will also be collecting canned goods for those three days for Hillcrest Community Center in Clinton.
