Toy donations needed for Beardstown's 'Santa Jack'


Santa's workshop, based in Beardstown, Illinois is in need of toy donations.

Jack Bailey, also known as Santa Jack, is going on his 11th year taking used toys and fixing them up to give to kids.

While he's unable to fix up used toys this year, he's in need of toys for boys and girls under 12.

Typically the organization delivers hundreds of toys a year, but false rumors about Bailey's death had some believing the program wasn't happening this year.

With less than 6 days to go until Christmas, Bailey needs to collect as many toys as possible.

"We are operating. I've operated for ten years. We've taken toys to over 20,000 kids and I'm not quitting for anything. We need toys desperately," stated Bailey.

Your toy donations can be dropped off at 9 Plaza Drive in Beardstown, Illinois.
