Time is growing short to make a contribution to the organizations working to make a merry Christmas for Rim Country residents in need.
Bins for donations to the Christmas food basket program, sponsored by the Optimists, are still at local markets. New, unwrapped toys for the toy drive can be delivered to the Payson Parks and Recreation Office in Green Valley Park through Dec. 22. Gifts will be accepted at the Salvation Army's Angel Tree at the National Bank through Dec. 20. Pine's Angel Tree program is ongoing.
