The organization helps more than 200 families each year, which adds up to nearly 650 children in need of toys.
The Salvation Army says its food and toy drive is an annual tradition that brings joy to everyone involved.
“To see the looks on the children’s faces, the families’ faces, the thank yous, the tears in their eyes. You can’t buy or sell that,” said Maj. Thomas Morrow, Salvation Army spokesman.
The organization says it’s running a little short this year, so any food or toy donation is appreciated.
