Residents of Shelby County have an opportunity to help Santa and his elves this year through the Shelby County “Santas” gift drive. The drive, which kicks off Nov. 1 and runs through Dec. 10, will be held at all CVS Pharmacy locations in Shelby County. According to Shelby County School’s social worker Dorann Tanner, each CVS Pharmacy will have a drop box for individuals to make donations.

Suggested donations include toys, gift cards, electronics, DVDs, school supplies, books, coats, clothing, shoes and personal hygiene items. Items will be collected, sorted and distributed to schools throughout the school district.
