Eastern Ohio Charity Association has been helping to provide toys to needy children for over 26 years. We are once again asking for the generosity and support of the local community. New toys are being collected to help give some local needy children a very MERRY CHRISTMAS this year. Collection period will start November 1, 2012 and run through December 1, 2012. Toys will be collected at various local stores to include; Wesbanco Bank, Dollar General, Dairy Queen, Family Dollar, Belmont Savings Bank, Convenient, Freebird Motoworx and Bethesdas Pizza Parlor. St Clairsvilles Dairy Queen is, and has been, a continued supporter by being a toy drop off for the past several years.

A friendly competition between Barnesville and Union Local Schools always provides many smiles for kids each year. A pizza party for the most generous class of each school has always been a joyful time for the winning class members.

Monetary donations are also gracefully accepted to help provide gifts and support for teenagers in need and their families.

Eastern Ohio Charity Association will again have an entry in Barnesville Christmas Parade, collecting toys along the parade route. Please come out and enjoy the parade and bring your new toys to help us fill up Santas sleigh this year. We would like to thank each and everyone in the community who has supported this great cause for many years.

Eastern Ohio Charity Association was founded by our passed dear friend DANNY LUYSTER and friends. For more information, please call Freebird Motoworx at 740-619-0069 or 740-238-0718.
