CARTERVILLE, IL — The Poshard Foundation’s Christmas Gift Giveaway toy distribution is underway in southern Illinois. Agencies serving abused, abandoned and neglected children are receiving gifts to make their Christmases a little brighter. 

Every year, the Poshard Foundation teams up with Ameren Illinois to distribute gifts to more than 500 children identified through social service agencies in the region.
