A local resident aims to give back to communities ravaged by Hurricane Michael.

Kathy Gloer has orchestrated a toy drive to benefit the Bay District Schools. The Florida Panhandle community has several families displaced without homes, and Gloer hopes to spread some holiday cheer to those in need.

Gloer helped organize a Panhandle Toy Drive drop-off location for people to donate. There are several locations in the Peachtree City, Fayetteville, Senoia, and Marietta/Kennesaw areas.

The group is asking for residents to donate new, unwrapped toys for students in kindergarden through the 12th grade. Local establishments like First Baptist Church PTC, Smith and Davis Clothing, Senoia Police Department, and Perfect Image in Brooks have gotten on board. They have boxes available for the toys to be donated.

Starr’s Mill High School is also involved. They have a location at the school for students, faculty and staff to join the cause.

There are currently 17 drop-off locations in the surrounding areas.

Gloer aims to help the Bay District Schools reach their goal of supporting 14,000 kids.

Donations are also still needed for new or gently-used jackets, socks, underwear, blankets, heaters, pillows, shoes, and work boots, along with diapers.

If you would like to participate, just stop by a designated location or mail donations to:
