If you are in the giving mood, there is a big need in Wood River tomorrow.  Santa's School Bus will be parked outside Dream Home Realty Center at 543 E. Ferguson Avenue.  The hope it to fill the bus with food for humans and animals, and also stuff it full of toys, coats, gloves and blankets.

The event is the brainchild of Sherry Gilleland, who says they filled a trolley last year, so they decided to up their expectations this year.

Gilleland comments

She says food donations will be split between a number of local food pantries.  Pet food will go to the 5A's, the Riverbend Humane Society and Hope Rescues, and toys will wind up with Toys for Tots.  The bus will be at the parking lot tomorrow from 9am-2pm.  Pictures with Santa begin at 10:00.  If you would like to donate, call Gilleland at 779-0990.
