Mom recently suffered an injury and is out of work. She has no income at this time and is worried she will not be able to give her children gifts for Christmas. She would appreciate any help the Elf can give her this year. Her 2-year-old daughter would enjoy any learning toy and her 3-month-old daughter needs teething toys.

Monetary donations may be made online at cscaa.com/christmaself.html or by sending a check made payable to CSCAA/Christmas Elf to 89 York St., Ste. 1, Auburn, NY 13021. A list of in-demand toys is also online. Toys can be dropped off at AmeriGas on Route 34, BJ's Wholesale, Cayuga/Seneca Community Action Agency at York Street, Wegmans, Kinney Drugs on State Street in Auburn and at 48 Wright Ave. by appointment. Distribution day is Dec. 14.
