The Tree of Toys is up and the Salvation Army has begun its toy drive to fill stockings for families who are in need over the Christmas season.
The Salvation Army is teaming up again with Westergard Ford for the annual Toy Drive. Those wishing to donate can bring an unwrapped toy to the dealership up until December 4. They have a trailer for residents to drop off their donations.
Amanda Courtenay of the Salvation Army says there is also a Tree of Toys at the Salvation Army Thrift Store.
“There will be a tree of specific toys kids are looking for at the Thrift Store. Because people come into the thrift store, and we have the cleaning protocols for it,” said Courtenay.
She is grateful for the support of the residents who step up every year to make sure there is a good Christmas for everyone.
“Without this community, I don’t know where we would be. This community is wonderful,” said Courtenay.
The Salvation Army is also hosting its tennis ball toss on Saturday, December 11. Attendees of the game can pick up a tennis ball and slip their donation inside. When the Dragons score, let the tennis balls fly. The Telus Teddy Bear Toss has been rescheduled for the new year.
