Shriner’s Hospital Donations

The Appalachian Wireless arena has opened its lobby to donations, accepting small packaged toys that Hillbilly Christmas in July organizers will take to Shriners Hospitals in a few weeks. Organizers say it is the least the community can do for the children, offering a little distraction during their hospital visits.“They’re sitting there and there’s nothing to do. You can imagine. I get bored just sitting around,” says a spokesperson “And just that dollar Hot Wheel- one buck- is all it takes and you can occupy a child’s time for hours.” The lobby of the Community Trust Bank Box Office, located on Main Street, is open during business hours for drop-offs.
