A “Fill the Truck Toy Drive” sponsored by the Salvation Army and Walmart continues through Dec. 15.
The program is expected to bring hundreds of thousands of toys to children across the country, and is at local Walmart stores.
Running through Dec. 15, the program will have collection trucks outside the stores or will have collection bins inside Walmart stores. Customers may drop off new, unwrapped toys at the trucks or in the bins through Dec. 15.
This year, the Walmart Foundation donated $1 million to The Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign, which will be applied to The Salvation Army feeding programs nationwide.
In addition, Walmart stores and Sam’s Clubs will have The Salvation Army’s red kettles and bell ringers in front of stores between Nov. 29 and Dec. 24, 2013.
Last year, Walmart and Sam’s Club helped The Salvation Army raise nearly $45 million—or 30 percent of the total amount raised during the campaign. All donations made to the red kettles remain in the local communities in which they are collected, and will help The Salvation Army provide food, clothing, shelter, financial assistance and other services to roughly 30 million people this year.
