Final registration for Brown toy giveway is Saturday

The final opportunity to register for the annual James Brown Toy Giveaway is Saturday.

Registration will be from 9 to 11 a.m. at James Brown Arena, 601 Seventh St. There is no registration on the day of the toy distribution, Dec. 20.

Parents must bring a photo ID for themselves and the Social Security card and birth certificate for each child age 1 to 12, said Elif Crawford, the organizer of the event.

The giveaway is sponsored by the James Brown Family Children Foundation. Turnout at three previous registration days was low, Crawford said.

“This is the last (registration day). They need to come out this Saturday,” she said.
