One day toy drive on Saturday
From the Fredericksburg Salvation Army:
Walmart and The Salvation Army are joining forces to provide toys to over 1,500 local children in need during the holidays with a toy drive event at Walmart Supercenters on Saturday, Nov. 9.
On November 9, shoppers will receive a list of suggested toy items. To participate, simply stop by and drop off new toys to The Salvation Army at the front of each Walmart store. Santa will be making visits to every Walmart store on the same day – adding an air of excitement and Christmas cheer to customers’ shopping experience in stores.
For those unable to participate in-store on November 9, The Salvation Army has provided a searchable online registry comprising all the items needed; each item requires just one click to purchase. http://www.walmart.com/lists/view-events-registry-items?id=76c5804b-1b8a-410e-9b68-e9f60087904c
Walmart and The Salvation Army have collaborated for more than 30 years to meet local community needs. Supporters like Walmart help The Salvation Army serve more than 23 million Americans each year through a range of social services, which help families overcome poverty.
All toys given to The Salv ion Army at the Walmart Supercenters in Spotsylvania, Stafford and King George counties will remain in the local community and will help The Salvation Army provide Christmas assistance to over 1,500 local children and families in need.
