Local girl collecting toys to give away to flood victims instead of receiving them as birthday gifts

RUSSELLVILLE, Ala. –  A young girl from Russellville wants to take an opportunity to help others.  It will be her birthday on Monday and Lara Gunderman would rather give to victims of the Louisiana flooding instead of receiving presents this year.  Lara says she doesn’t need any new toys, but the kids in Baton Rouge do, so they are collecting new toys for their church to distribute on a mission trip during Labor Day weekend.

If you would like to help Lara help others, you can drop of new toys to North Highlands Church of Christ in Russellville or at the Franklin County School Annex in Phil Campbell.

You can also mail donations to:

  • North Highlands Church of Christ
  • Attn: LA Mission Trip
  • P.O. Box Drawer H,
  • Russellville, Ala. 35653
