The Community Santa Workshop is located on the back side of the State Fair Shopping Center behind Wood's and is open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. through Friday, Dec. 7.
Toys can be dropped off at the Townsquare Media Studios at 2209 S. Limit in Sedalia, any toy donation site or at the workshop, and monetary donations can also be mailed to PO Box 43, Sedalia, Mo., 65301. If you need more information, call 660-473-2408.
