GM workers donate toys to Salvation Army

"It's one of the ways our members give back and show our appreciation to the community". "The community supports us, so it's our chance to support it". Bikes, stuffed animals, games, soccer balls and tablets were some of the gifts workers purchased. Thursday, Giant donated $35,000 to the Salvation Army of York, as part of its Feeding Our Neighbors Every Day campaign.

Tom Lenkevich, Giant president, said the retailer has donated over $615,000 this year to help families with holiday meals and other expenses.

The Isle of Wight Council and the Salvation Army are calling for volunteers to help make sure people experiencing homelessness do not have to bed down on Island streets this winter.

"Cash donations can be made as well", said Benner.

"We get people right off the streets, not typical homeless, we get whole families, people who suddenly find themselves homeless", Tamayo said.

This year, over 550 parcels will be given to local residents who have been referred to us by social agencies.

Rick Demuynck, plant manager, congratulated the team on "another outstanding job" with the toy drive.

"There have been dizzying changes to the tax code over time and through it all the American people have been very generous", Clark said. "It's still remarkable and says a lot about the team here".

The Salvation Army IOW Homeless Service is supporting the Council by opening its doors to the homelessness from now until the end of March 2018 and the 2 organisations are asking any individuals, groups or businesses to join them in working in a volunteer capacity. The toys can be dropped off or mailed to 1501 Glenwood Ave., Youngstown, OH 44511.
