Salvation Army's "Toy Town," needs your help

Posted: Updated:

The Salvation Army in Sioux Falls says it's in desperate need of Christmas gifts for their annual "Toy Town." They say they need gifts for older children, both boys and girls. These toys that are collected over the next few weeks will be given out at their annual distribution at "Toy Town," December 20th and 21st.

Major Thomas Riggs with the Salvation Army says they want to serve around 2,000 kids in the area. They would like to give 2 new gifts, per child, per household. However, right now he says they don't have nearly enough toys to make that happen.

Major Riggs suggests watch and bracelet combo gifts, and table games. Major Riggs doesn't recommend buying video games because most of these children won't have the gaming system needed to play the game. Major Riggs says to think about what your child would like and go with that.

The way Toy Town works, is on December 20th and 21st, parents who have signed up for assistance are able to come in and pick out gifts for their children. The parent is then able to take the gift home and wrap it to make sure their child has something to open for the holidays.

If you are interested in giving you can either drop off items at The Salvation Army located at 800 N. Cliff Avenue from 9:00am - Noon or 1:00pm - 4:00pm Monday through Friday. You can also drop off items right at the Angel Tree located in the Macy's Wing of the Empire Mall during all Mall Holiday Hours.

You can also drop off gifts at several drop off sites in Sioux Falls: All Edward Jones locations, Washington Pavilion, Sioux Falls Credit Union locations, Dairy Queen on Minnesota. Ave., First National Bank or Celebration United Methodist Church in Brandon are also operating as satellite sites and will be open through December 17th.
