Salvation Army hosts ‘Fill the Truck’

THOMASVILLE — The Salvation Army Thomasville Corps hosted a “Fill the Truck” event on Saturday to collect toy donations for Christmas.

The event was held at the Walmarts in Cairo and Thomasville. It was part of a nationwide toy drive taking place on weekends across the country between Nov. 29 and Dec. 15. in 1,600 Walmart stores. The nationwide toy drive will bring hundreds of thousands of toys to children across the country.

In addition, The Salvation Army Thomasville Corps is reminding the community about its “Angel Tree” project. Currently, there has not been enough participation to fulfill the wishes of needy area children.

“We currently have over 200 angels who have been forgotten. There are local kids who the angles were not adopted or were returned to us because various donors were unable to help us give them gifts for Christmas,” said Christina Taylor, Corps Officer.

Even though they have calculated that the Woodhaven Furniture employees of Cairo and Coolidge will give The Salvation Army toys for 100-plus kids, it will still leave them with about 100 more children who will need gifts.

The toys are scheduled to be delivered Saturday.

To help The Salvation Army sponsor local children in need for Christmas, contact Capt. Christina Taylor at (229) 226-3772.
