The Christmas Connection will provide clothing, toys and gifts to low-income families through the 31st annual Christmas Shopping Days program.

Hundreds of families and senior citizens are expected to shop this year, and donations are needed, according to a news release.

Businesses and organizations are hosting collection sites for HUGS (Hats, Underwear, Gloves and Socks), new and gently used coats and new toys. HUGS and coats are needed for children and adults in all sizes.

Collection sites include Dollar General stores and metro-area Quik Print locations and the Christmas Connection store at 5728 S May Ave. A complete list of collection sites is available at www.christmasconnection.org.

Bank of Oklahoma will partner with FOX 25 to host their annual toy drive, Dec. 1-18. New, unwrapped toys can be dropped off at any BOK location in the metro.

Last year, more than 2,100 children received new toys, clothing, shoes and books during Shopping Days.

For more information or to donate or volunteer, go to www.christmasconnection.org, send an email to sdutton@christmasconnection.org or call 634-2006.
