Toy Drive Hailed A Success

The Salvation Army's annual Christmas toy drive in Bridgewater is being hailed a huge success. On Saturday, hundreds of people dropped-off a toy or toys at the receiving point in the Canadian Tire parking lot. The Salvation Army's Captain Felipe Vega says this year's toy drive could be a record breaker.

Vega says its difficult to put a dollar figure on the campaign but he believes its substantial. He's thanking the donors, volunteers, Canadian Tire and CKBW for their help in staging the Toy Drive. It will continue though until December 17th. Donors can continue to drop toys off at Danny Carey's Insurance on North Street or the Salvation Army Thrift Store on Dominion Street in Bridgewater.
