As Eyewitness News' annual Tower of Toys drive winds down, Papa John's pizza locations throughout our region are offering a sweet deal to those who donate.

Wednesday through Sunday, Papa John's pizza locations in Kanawha City, Patrick Street, Cross Lanes, St. Albans and Hurricane will be accepting a donation of a new and unwrapped toy in exchange for a family size chocolate chip cookie with a purchase of a pizza. The cookie is a $6 value. The special is available on carryout or delivery orders.

Meanwhile, there is still time for you to bring an unwrapped toy and spread the joy of Christmas. The toys go to the Union Mission in Charleston for distribution to area children.

Dollar General and 96.1, The Wolf are among the partners participating with Eyewitness News in the Tower of Toys. The radio station has been announcing some drop-off locations during its morning show.

Donations also can be dropped off at our studios in Charleston at 1301 Piedmont Road and in Huntington at 1002 Fourth Ave. Other drop-off locations are the Building and Remodeling Warehouse in Nitro, Vandalia Grille on Hale Street in Charleston and Best Home Medical in Hurricane and Barboursville.

C&H Taxi, Swamp Fox Tavern in Sissonville, Metro 911 and the Charleston Treatment Center have been collecting toys to contribute to the drive. The Winter Series in Charleston also collected toys.

Meanwhile, if you don’t live in the Kanawha Valley, there is another way you can give to some deserving children. Northside Chevrolet in Summersville is conducting a toy drive for West Virginia University Children’s Hospital through Saturday, Dec. 14.

The dealership is collecting new unwrapped toys and other supplies (such as blankets, socks, bibs, books and clothing) for kids of all ages. Anyone who brings in a donation through Saturday, Dec. 14, will be entered to win $500 cash. They also can register to win one of two Power Wheels Corvette Stingrays. Santa Claus also will be at the dealership from 10 a.m. to noon Dec. 14. Collected toys will be donated to the hospital before Christmas.

Over the years, Eyewitness News has carried on this annual tradition to help make sure children across our region have something special to open on Christmas morning. Please do what you can to make a child smile this Christmas.
