Volunteers are being sought for Scott County's annual distribution of Christmas toys to economically disadvantaged families, slated for Sunday afternoon at the Boys & Girls Club of Scott County.
According to event coordinator Terrie Cross, a number of volunteers are still needed for the event, which is expected to begin at about 1 p.m.
"We do not have near enough volunteers to help the parents pick out toys," Cross said Saturday evening, as workers scurried to set up the gymnasium at the Boys & Girls Club's facility on U.S. Hwy. 27 in south Oneida for the Sunday afternoon event.
One volunteer is needed for each parent as they make their way through the line. Volunteers are requested to report to the Boys & Girls Club by 12:30 p.m. Sunday afternoon.
"Parents will start shopping at 1 p.m., or earlier if we are ready," Cross said. "The line is usually very long a couple of hours ahead of time."
The distribution is expected to result in thousands of toys being handed out to Scott County families.
