The Place of Forsyth County's Holiday House at Freedom Tabernacle Church is in need of items for elementary school boys and girls and bicycles for all ages.

CUMMING — A local community project helping children from families facing hardships to get presents over the holidays is in need of more donations.

On Thursday, Youth Coordinator Naomi Byrne said The Place of Forsyth County’s Holiday House at Freedom Tabernacle Church is in need of gifts for both boys and girls who are in elementary school, as well as bicycles for all ages.

Gifts have already been dropped off, but items have also already been depleted.

Donations can be made at the church at 2160 Freedom Parkway.

The Holiday House allows parents dealing hardships who have previously registered to use a set number of points to pick donated Christmas gifts for their children and is expected to serve more than 2,000 children in Forsyth County by Saturday, the last day the house is open.

Gifts were accepted for children up to age 18, as long as they were still in school, and spit into rooms by age and gender. Other items donated included holiday decorations, wrapping paper and treats for the activity center, where kids will play and be entertained as parents go through the donations.

All items were donated by the community and will serve only Forsyth County children. At the house’s ribbon cutting, Byrne said more than 8,000 gifts had been collected.
