By the end of the night, our shopping carts were overflowing with toys… and our hearts were overflowing with joy! We love making holiday wishes come true. Anything for the kids! Your generous donations made this possible. Thank you! #wsav #salvationarmy #walmart #wsavholidayhope #holidayhope #shoppingspree @wsav3
“We sure do appreciate being a part of this. It’s fun to be in the midst of those who love their community and love their neighbors and those who need it most. And that’s exactly where the Salvation Army lands and it’s a joy to be a part of,” explained Major Paul Egan of the Salvation Army.
All of those items were taken to the Salvation Army gym to be sorted.
Later this week, parents in need will be able to go shopping for their children among the items.
