Christian Services will accept last-minute toy donations through Christmas Eve.

The official deadline for donations is today. But coordinators say last-minute donations will be accepted at the Church of Lancaster youth building, 206 Mercy Drive, off Craig Manor Road through Wednesday.

The Angel Tree program normally starts off the donation period with about 1,200 children and usually ends up with about 1,500 children served. Due to layoffs and the downturn in the economy, the program started off with 1,675 children on its list this year.

Toys are especially needed for babies and teenagers.

Toys must be new and unwrapped for donation. For details, call 286-5112.
