With the annual city/county Christmas at Home Food and Toy drive well underway, several additional drop-off locations have been announced.

New toys and/or non-perishable food items may now be dropped off through December 4 at the following locations: Albany City Hall; WANY radio station; Clinton County News; Family Dollar; Save-A-Lot; City Florist; McWhorter’s Variety Store; Dollar General Market; Fred’s; and the Clinton County Judge/Executive’s office.

Also, churches in the community still have time to collect non-perishable food items, which is desperately needed, by setting up collection boxes at their church through December 3.
