The Salvation Army Christmas basket and toy distribution is in progress and more volunteers are needed to help. The Salvation Army will be assisting almost 800 families with food baskets and supplying over 14 hundred children with new toys, hats and gloves. KSMU's Joe Morgan has more.
Many people refer to the holiday season as a time for giving back to people in need and the Salvation Army is one organization that relies heavily on volunteers to help out. Today is the Salvation Army's food basket and toy distribution and volunteers are need until 9 tonight. Director of the Salvation Army Major Norman Grainger says that he is encouraging those who haven't volunteered before to come make a difference.
Grainger says that anyone with time is welcome to come out and make Christmas special for Ozarks families in need. He says that there are plenty of things to do at the Salvation Army today but one thing is the most important.
Grainger says it's important to help spread holiday cheer during this time of year.
Grainger is asking for volunteers all the way until closing time tonight.
Volunteers are welcome to help in the efforts until 9 p.m. at the Salvation Army located at 1707 West Chestnut Expressway. For KSMU News, I'm Joe Morgan.
