James Ballew has run a toy drive in Bryant for 14 years, He and his family started the program so that kids in Saline County would get the toys people here donate.
The Ballews created the organization (Toy Troopers) 14 years ago to teach their son, Brandt, then in kindergarten about the power and joy of giving. This past year Brandt, 19, a freashman in college, still assisted with the drive.
Those who are in need of Christmas gifts register for this assistance through the Churches Joint Council on Human Needs.
