LARGO Ė The Largo/Mid-Pinellas Kiwanis Club delivered a donation of stuffed animals and toys to the Directions For Living Nov. 30.
The toys will be distributed as Christmas gifts to children who are served at the Largo Center of Directions For Living, many of whom have been victims of abuse and neglect. These children will receive these gifts to help them feel the magic of the season.
