GALLIPOLIS — On Friday, the Medical Shoppe helped make Christmas memories for area children during its “Santa Christmas Giveaway.”
Area children only needed to sit on Santa’s lap to receive a free toy at the area business located at 101 Jackson Pike.
The Medical Shoppe had been taking collections of new, unused and unwrapped gifts for kids with a minimum value of $5. Each time someone donated a new toy, they were entered into a drawing for a free lift chair. More on who won the lift chair in an upcoming edition.
The Medical Shoppe and Gallipolis Daily Tribune partnered in the project, with the Tribune as a second toy collection destination.
Andrea Saunders, the marketer at the Medical Shoppe and respiratory therapist, stated she hopes the giveaway becomes an annual event.
“We think it’s very important to do things like this for our community,” Saunders had said.
