Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints show off parts of their donation to the Salvation Army.
Local members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints donated more than 1,000 toys to the Salvation Army during Project Rescue Christmas 2020 this year.
A challenge was issued Dec. 5 to donate 950 toys in nine days. After many calls and emails, church members exceeded the goal. Throughout Oregon, church members contributed more than 10,000 toys.
“It has been a blessing for us to meet our goal and a blessing to so many kids who will have something for Christmas,” said Dan Kohler, spokesperson for the church.
