Region 8 gives brighter Christmas to children

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Christmas is brighter for a group of children thanks to the generosity of Region 8.

Employees at Gamble Home Furnishings and Design in Jonesboro held a toy drive for the Paragould Children's Home on Friday and the results exceeded any expectations.

Interior Designer for Gamble Cindy Shepard said they had no idea how successful the drive would be.

"It's just been overwhelming," Shepard said. "We have collected about 150 toys, over $2,000 in cash and that's gonna put some smiles on some kids faces during the holidays."

They'll be delivering the toys to the children's home on Christmas week.
