The Eastern Ohio Charity Association has been helping to provide toys for needy children for over 26 years. This year the Beallsville Schools chose to work with this organization to help make Christmas enjoyable for those in need. The Ohio Eastern Star is a charitable organization and its local chapters, such as Beallsville Chapter #24, are involved in many community and school activities. This year the local chapter decided to team up with the schools and the EOCA to maximize their impact on the holidays. As a boost for Santa, the members donated money, in lieu of a gift exchange, and with some additional contributions were able to purchase several toys for the school collection. These were added to other toy donations for the benefit of local children.
