The annual Jamming for the Kids concert may have been canceled this year due to COVID-19 concerns, but the need and the effort to collect cash and toys hasn’t stopped.

Organizers are still collecting cash and unwrapped new toys for the children of people who are incarcerated and for children in the custody of the Mississippi Department of Child Protective Services.

Boxes for toy collection have been placed at Toney’s Grill and Seafood Market at 710 U.S. Highway 61 North, at the Warren County Sheriff’s Office at 1000 Grove St. outside the main entrance, and at River City Rescue Mission at 3705 Washington St.

To make a cash donation, drop it off at the mission for Director Ernie Hall, or go online at RiverCityRescueMission.org.

Organizers are hopeful that the community will support this effort that has provided Christmas presents to area children for the past 22 years.

For more information call Ernie Hall at 601-636-6602.
