The “Toys for Needy” project in Dyersville is in need of donated items this Christmas season. The donations help less fortunate families in the Dyersville area. Miriam Eick started the project years ago in her Dyersville home. She would appreciate your help if you could donate new items such as sweatpants and sweatshirts; socks, underwear, hats and gloves for men, women and children; laundry detergent and other cleaning products; kitchen and bath towels; school supplies, crayons, markers, coloring books and glue; board games and puzzles; books; candy; tins full of popcorn; gifts for teenagers; and holiday decorations (new or used). If you have items to drop off, contact Miriam at 875.8743.
