The spirit of the season shines bright with Neighborhood GIFT, a collaborative community event in which families in need receive toys for each child and a festive holiday meal. Thanks to people like you who so generosly give their time and money, many more families are able to share in the joys of the holiday season. Volunteers are needed Dec 7 and 8 at the Salvation Army warehouse to help sort toys and at the Sullivan Arena on December 12, 13, and 14 to help with set-up, greeting, toy and food distribution.
