Two holiday drives are now underway, one to help local children and the other to help local seniors.

Carolina Mountain Title and the Watauga County Bar Association are teaming up for a Christmas Toy Drive. New, unwrapped toys for children ages infant to 18 years old can be dropped off at several area locations until December 6th. The toys and all donations will go to the High Country Caregivers to be distributed, according to event organizer Lyndsay Ennis.

Collection locations are:

Angle, Rupp & Rupp – 910 West King Street

Disanti Capua Garrett – 642 West King Street

Moffatt & Moffatt – 833 State Farm Road

John Turner – 468 New Market Blvd

Carolina Mountain Title – 1675 Blowing Rock Road

The other local drive is through the Watauga County Sheriff's Office with the “Santa for Seniors” project.

WCSO is asking the community to help make this possible by providing approximately 300 gift bags of goodies that will warm a local senior's heart. The bags can include items such as toiletries, socks, mittens, small throws, puzzle books, old-fashion and sugar-free candy, hand soap, and small hand sanitizer. The bags will be collected at the Sheriff’s Office Monday-Friday from 8 am to 4 pm.

All bags need to be delivered to the WCSO tree by Friday, December the 10th so Santa will have plenty of time to make his deliveries!

WCSO would also like to thank Watauga County Project on Aging for helping with suggested items and making sure everyone in their services receives a bag!

Contact the Sheriff's Office if you have any questions.
