Toyota workers donate toys, money to Salvation Army

  • Toyota employees step up for Salvation Army

Part of the money goes toward its Toy Shop. If life has been kind to me, and it has, I think it's only reasonable to show a little gratitude by sharing a little of my good fortune with others not lucky enough to have it.

Twice in three days last week, police said they received reports of a bucket stolen from the 700 block of North Michigan Avenue, just outside a Neiman Marcus store.

Numerous toys will be distributed Tuesday morning as families taking part in the "Angel Tree" outreach pick up toys, so their children will have gifts under the tree Christmas Day. Captain Benny Carringer of the Wheeling Salvation Army says he used to be a recipient of Angel Tree gifts, and now he's honored to be apart of such an wonderful process. "And if a child asked for a specific thing that was not filled, we can use these toys to add to the angels that have already been returned by the volunteer shoppers".

The release said the donation will boost fundraising efforts, which are running about 10 percent behind last season's numbers. They are asked to work two-hour shifts.

Police official Abdur Razaq Cheema told media that at least two attackers were able to escape and said that a search is underway. On the other hand, security forces' incompetence despite new tactical training and latest weapons is itself a question mark.

Major John Flanagan says donations have been overwhelming this year, but their red kettle campaign is struggling, because it's now a plastic world.

And if you don't even have to come across a kettle to give.

Students have been participating in this drive for five years, and in that time frame, more than 7,000 toys have been donated. Included with the check was a note that stated, "I pray that with the Grace of God you can double this by the end of the Salvation Army Bell Ringing Period".
