The 7th annual Troyer Toy Drive has wrapped up for another year.

Hundreds of toys were collected for the Salvation Army during the two day event at Home Hardware Building Centre. All the toys will be used by the Salvation Army to help over 170 families that have applied for Christmas hampers.

Earlier this week, Steve Troyer from Troyer Ventures said it’s always amazing to see the generosity in Fort St. John

Volunteers will now sort the toys and put them into hampers for those in need. Hampers will be delivered just before Christmas.

The Salvation Army will now focus it’s attention on the over all goal of their Christmas fundraiser the Kettle Drive. The Sally Anne hopes to raise over $180,000 this year through the kettles and their annual mail out.

If anyone is interested in volunteering for a kettle shift, serving Christmas dinner, building hampers or wrapping children’s gifts, please call 250-785-0506.
