Chico Salvation Army hosts toy and food give away

The cold weather has added an extra challenge for the Salvation Army bell ringers this week. No matter the wish written on angel-shaped tags, the Salvation Army handed out thousands of gifts to more than 400 Tehachapi children and their families Wednesday morning as they waited in line at the Monroe High School gym. Christmas presents will be given to the homeless who attend. If you have any new unwrapped toys that could be donated, they would much appreciate them. It's a day when we look to those who have given us donations at the kettles and those who sent in a check.

A food donation made by a Farmington man to a local charitable organization will help feed more than 200 people this Christmas. The organization also responds to natural disasters such as wildfires and tornadoes, provides meals and toys to families in need, and conducts research and analyses regarding human needs around the country.

All 300 of the families who arrived had gone through a two month application process for the Salvation Army to identify their need. Many volunteers came out to help give parents and children their gifts. The person or people responsible have been donating coins by dropping them in holiday kettles for at least four or five years, said Andrew Shiels, Warren corps officer for the Salvation Army. Rep. Yaccarino was joined by Salvation Army Captain Charles Adams, Corps.

The salvation army kettle campaign is continuing to struggle.

The Salvation Army is proud to be a part of the city of Bend and service all of Deschutes county. "When the teachers see them on a day to day basis, they know the need".
