HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - The Shed BBQ & Blues Joint in downtown Hattiesburg is holding a toy drive raffle to benefit the South Mississippi Children's Center.

The center provides emergency shelter for children 9 to 17 years of age who have been abused or neglected and also homeless and runaway children.

The drive began Monday and will continue through Thursday, December 23.

Anyone who donates a toy or at least a dollar at the restaurant will be entered in a raffle with the winner getting a 14 pound Shed smoked turkey, cornbread dressing, and a gift basket full of Shed gear.

Donated items should not be wrapped, in sanitary condition, and in good working order.

Besides toys, the center's wish list includes socks, underwear, clothes, shoes, light colored towels and gift cards to local stores.

The Shed is located at 126 Mobile Street. For information on the drive contact Abby at 601-408-9038.
