When some people think of a Christmas Toy Drive, they think of buying toys or children's clothing for those young ones in need, but homeless teens deserve to have a Christmas, too.
The Marion County Coalition to End Homelessness is sponsoring "Toys for Homeless Teens this holiday season. They are asking people to donate gift cards, headphones, sporting goods, and more.
"Or something that someone over the age of 12 would be happy to see at their Christmas. We're doing that drive also so we can cover those kids that don't get anything because they're over the age of 12. I still got Christmas presents when I was older than 12," said Gena Wagaman of the Marion County Coalition to End Homelessness.
Any donations can be sent to:
