Salvation Army transforms gym into toy store

Posted: Updated:

Wednesday, the Salvation Army will distribute all the toys that were collected through Toy Town.

The annual toy drive helps make sure less fortunate children have toys under the tree on Christmas morning.

The Salvation Army has turned its gymnasium into a festive toy store.

Starting at 8:30 Wednesday morning, those who qualified for Toy Town assistance will be able to pick up toys and food to share with their families on Christmas Day.

The Salvation Army says this event would not be possible without the community's help.

They're able to help over 2,000 kids this year. That's about 500 more than last year.

14 News spoke with some parents last year at Toy Town who said this is the only way they could get presents for their kids.

If you want to help out the Salvation Army's cause, you can still donate to the Red Kettle's until Christmas Eve.
