Our 2021 goal has been increased to twelve thousand toys!  And we’re getting more requests from families in need every day!”


What We Do

The need has never been greater for children in the Valley to have their Christmas dreams fulfilled.  The list of families requesting assistance through the area’s Salvation Army locations has skyrocketed the past two years – due in part to the Covid-19 pandemic.  Can You Help?  Our goal for 2021 is 12,000 toys! (Minimum 2 per child & a stocking stuffer or 2)  All Toys will be collected on the 11th and distributed to Valley area children by December 20th.

How Can You Help?

The Salvation Army, Midas and Mix 98.9 are asking you to donate cash or a new toy to the Valley’s ARMY OF TOYS DRIVE!
