RHINELANDER - Kids look forward to opening gifts on Christmas morning. However, not all parents can afford to put presents under the tree. That's why the Salvation Army is hosting a nationwide toy drive Saturday.
The drive is happening at participating Walmarts across the country, including locations in Rhinelander, Minocqua and Antigo. Volunteers are looking forward to the opportunity to give back.
"I think it's important to be able to help those in need," said service representative Amanda Jahn.
All donations will go to families within those communities. Volunteers say signing up to receive donations is easy and judgement-free.
"We have them go down to the job center and sign up," said volunteer Jackie Schmieder. "There's a form you fill out. Your income is not included in that. The goal is to make sure that kids have something to open for Christmas."
The toy drive will start at 8:30 a.m. and go until 6:30 p.m.
