Terriers aid Salvation Army in hamper distribution

Ty Enns, Major Brenda Coles and Jared Roy pose with the many donations of toys and teddy’s to choose from.

Do you ever wonder where your donations to the Salvation Army go? How about all those teddy bears from the annual Teddy Bear Toss game.

This morning we joined Major Brenda Coles down at our local Salvation Army as it was the second day of pick up for Christmas Hampers.

Local families register for a hamper and based on the size of the family, the hampers are put together from small to large. Each family also gets to choose a gift for each member of the family from the many generous donations. Remember all those stuffies we collected!

This holiday season Major Coles and the volunteers are helping out 586 families.

Jared Roy, Ty Enns and Scott Mickoski were on hand this morning lending a hand and their muscles carrying out the many hampers that were being picked up.
