Greetings!

 

I am reaching out to you today with an additional opportunity to help this Christmas season. As you know, The Salvation Army is best known this time of year for ringing bells at the Red Kettles, but we have another very important program that runs this time of year. We call it our Toy and Joy Shop.

 

This event is a distribution of toys and games to families in need of help this holiday season. Throughout the year, we collect toys, games, gadgets, and other items that can be given away as Christmas gifts to children who may not have been able to have much this Christmas season. We are blessed to be in the position to help families in need this holiday season, but we need your help in making this distribution work. What we ask is that if you are able to help us during our distribution days, you sign up on our sign-up genius. The link for it is: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0f4aa5ab29abffc25-2022

 

We thank you so much for the work you already do to help us help others. It is through your hard work and dedication to our cause that allows us to do the most good in the community around us. Thank you again for all that you do!

 

 ‘Tis the Season,

 

Bret Hayhurst
