Salvation Army Toy Drive
November 7 - December 13, 2016
Families in the counties of Marinette, WI and Menominee, MI continue to struggle during these difficult economic times especially during the Christmas holidays. The Salvation Army provides families the opportunity to receive toys, new clothing, and gifts donated by members in the community. Angel Tree Tags are distributed throughout the area giving information of children's gender, ages, and sizes. Each eligible family will recieve a box of Christmas Dinner food and a few extra items to get them through the holidays. The Salvation Army Toy Drive utilizes volunteers to sort toys and assist parents who are eligible. Approximately 350 children recieve toys, clothing, and gifts through this program. Adopting a family is a great way to add extra cheer and support to local families.
November 4 - December 24, 2016
Groups, businesses, families, service clubs and/or associations can help us get a running start by volunteering to ring bells. This year with the addition of the youth center, the bell ringing goal is $100,000. If all shifts were covered, this and more would be realized. We're looking for groups to challenge one another. Call the office if we can help.
