Toybox

Roseann is a mother of three children. She would like a car seat, size 20 pounds and up, for Danielle to keep her safe when she outgrows the infant-sized seat. Teething, bath or educational toys for six months and up or a sit and play walker would help Roseann to be prepared with the things her baby will soon need. Two-year-old Donny would have a really great Christmas if he found Jump Around Tigger, a Spider-Man figure, any SpongeBob or learning toys for ages 3 and up or a V-Smile game system under the tree. Thomas, 7, would love for Santa to bring games for his Nintendo Gameboy DS, a wrestling ring and men, a Leapfrog learning system for ages 8 and up, a Gamecube or an Escalade toy truck with spinners.

Christmas for the Elderly

Ms. R, 79, lives with chronic pain from arthritis and has poor circulation. Her Christmas wishes include warm, nonslip soled socks without binding elastic, flannel gowns, undershirts without sleeves or pants in a size medium. Gift certificates from any grocery store or pharmacy would be appreciated, as would help with food for a small dog or grooming supplies. Other items that would make Ms. R's Christmas a whole lot brighter are towels and wash cloths, dish towels, toiletries and cleaning supplies.

Donations can be dropped off at the Southeast Missourian offices. Monetary donations can be mailed to P.O. Box 4, Cape Girardeau, Mo. 63702-0004.
