Heritage Baptist Church collecting toys for children of Harlan miners


LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Heritage Baptist Church in Lexington has been collecting toys for miners’ families in Harlan even before Friday’s news that some former Blackjewel miners will temporarily be out of work again this month.

Toy drive organizer Terry Aldridge says they have already received 500 toys.
