  • Salvation Army partnering with Toot 'N Totum for children in need

Lt. Shane Carter is pictured with the Salvation Army Kettle at SHOP 'n SAVE. I think we exceeded that. The Salvation Army relies on direct contributions and is not funded by the government or the United Way. The campaign, which began November 10 and lasts until December 23, has gained traction this month, but a few big match days still remain, Waugus said. "When we started, we were able to put the toys in little barrels".

Christmas wishes being filled on Monday as hundreds picked up bags full of toys and boxes full of food.

"This means so much to them. just to give their children a sense of Christmas spirit so that when they grow up they can share it with someone else", Ellis said.

The stores have been collecting donations all month long in red kettles, and now the donations will be used to help bring joy to children in need.




The Salvation Army could have been mistaken for Santa's Workshop as staff worked through the weekend to sort through thousands of donated gifts. Botkin let it slip when he called Friday to make sure the commander was going to be at the toy drive donation.

"Generally speaking, the last week is usually the best", she said.

Hickman is holding out hope that despite the challenges that come with the winter weather that the community will rally around The Salvation Army and help lift it over it's fundraising target.
