A local woman is raising money to buy toys for sick children. Robin Floyd was inspired recently to gather the funds to buy 500 gifts at a local dollar store, and take them to the children who are patients at St. Jude's Children's Hospital in St. Louis.

Floyd comments

She is about halfway to her goal, and you can donate by dropping a donation at the First Christian Church at 760 Washington Avenue.
