(Anderson, SC). Please join us today at 3:30 p.m. at AIM’s WACS Cottage, 1206 S. Murray St., Anderson, SC 29624. We will be presenting Christmas gifts to several needy families and their children in the Anderson community. 

In an effort to assist the community during the holidays, the Diversion Program Department of the Tenth Circuit Solicitor’s Office has collected over $8,000 worth of toys to be dispersed by Anderson Interfaith Ministries to families in need during this Christmas season. The toys were collected by allowing clients of the Diversion Programs to exchange $30 worth of children’s toys or clothes for 10 hours of community service. With the toy drive only in its second year, the effort is an overwhelming success.

Due to the success of the toy drive, Solicitor Adams has decided to extend this idea throughout the year. Beginning immediately, the Diversion Program office will coordinate with a different agency, requesting a supply list from them. The supply drive will occur for a set time period with all donations being delivered to that agency. The first such collaboration will be with the Nurse Family Partnership of DHEC and will begin Monday, December 21, 2009.
