Birthline, a non-profit based in Clairemont that assists pregnant women and mothers with small children, is currently seeking toy donations for its annual Christmas basket drive.
The all-volunteer group needs unwrapped toys for children ranging from newborns to 12 years of age. Last year, Santa & volunteers handed out 76 Christmas baskets to local at-need families, reaching more than 250 children.
