A little Bellville boy has taken it upon himself to help other children have a brighter Christmas.

Eight-year-old Dylan Parsons wanted to have toys donated for the kids at Akron Children's Hospital.

His mother, Heather Parsons, helped him arrange a toy drive at the Darr Event Center outside of Bellville this past weekend with 49 vendors and director sales companies.

About a quarter of the toys needed to fill the semi have been donated and $1,700 was raised during the toy drive.

If you would like to donate a toy, you still can by contacting Heather Parsons at 567-215-5353.
