    Lee County EMS: Early Operation Christmas Present
    September 14-October 7, 2017
    EMS Station, 1212 N. Orange

    Many families are unable to celebrate Christmas this year, especially now due to flooding devastation. A simple way to bring Christmas to these children is to donate a new, unwrapped gift for those between the ages of newborn - 14 years old. Let's start early in making sure that every child has a gift this season.

    Starting September 14th you can drop off any new toys at the EMS Station (1212 N. Orange). On October 7th from 8am to 12pm, please stop in and enjoy a donut and drop any last gifts off.

    Help make a difference for the many children in need this holiday season through Lee County EMS Early Operation Christmas Present.

    Gift Ideas for children in need:

    Dolls                    Skateboards                     Purses/Tote Bags
    Toy Cars              Bikes with Helmets             Craft Sets
    Board Games         Sports Equipment              Action Figures
    Dress up Sets       Body Lotion/Spray Kits        Music Players
    Building Blocks      Jewelry Sets                     Basketballs
    Remote control Cars   Educational Baby Toys   Puzzles
    Gift Cards for kids aged 10-14
