BRISTOL, Tenn. — There is still a week left to donate toys or kids’ clothing through the 4th annual Toy Drive on the Line campaign and spread some Christmas cheer to children who have survived domestic abuse and violence. Items donated will go to Abuse Alternatives, which provides services to survivors of relationship abuse and violence, including emergency sheltering. Fourteen businesses in downtown Bristol are serving as drop-off points for unwrapped toys and clothes for children 17 and younger. Customers who make a donation worth $30 or more and bring a receipt will receive a gift from that business. This year’s drive ends Dec. 16.
