”This is the kick off toy drive event for The Salvation Army Christmas Blessing Campaign,” said KimBurry, Christmas toy depot coordinator. “We so appreciate Brendan Buttler for organizing the ride.This year we received hundreds of toys—Lego, dolls, games, puzzles and even a bicycle. This will enable to ensure families in our community have wonderful Christmas.”

According to communications coordinator Patty Lou Bryant, the nonprofit helped more than 500 families and provided children with more than 1,100 toys.
