    Reverend Hezekiah Stewart says this year they've had more people request help with light, water and gas bills, and as Christmas approaches, the need for warm clothes, food and toys is increasing.

    Just a few things Stewart says everyone should have over the holidays.

    Stewart says toys and gifts are needed for kids ages 12 and up, and foods like turkey and pasta are also needed. You can drop off donations at 3101 Springer Boulevard or 5630 Mabelvale Pike.
    And the Salvation Army's angel tree needs extra help this holiday season.

    Yesterday, a Little Rock manufacturing company helped 50 angels off the tree, but there are many more to be chosen. There are still 800 to 1,000 angels still need adopting.

    Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield is asking for your help with Operation Woolly Mittens.

    If you donate winter weather accessories, you'll receive a voucher to skate free for an hour at the outdoor ice rink in downtown Little Rock.

    You can drop off gloves, scarves, hats and much more in adult and kids sizes at the River Market pavilion Sunday, December 19 from noon until 8 p.m.

    All week -- Tom and Alyson have been live at area Walmarts, collecting money and toys for the annual Stuff the Sleigh campaign.
    So far, nearly $5,000 dollars and over 10,000 toys have been donated.

    Paul Wilson, of Wilson Home Improvement donated a total of 50 bikes valued at nearly $5,000. Stuff the Sleigh brings Christmas to foster children in Arkansas.

    Stuff the Sleigh wraps up Friday at the Little Rock Walmart on Bowman from 5 until 9:30 a.m.
