Salvation Army, Area Kids Need Your Help

Fill the_Truck_CoverMADISONVILLE, KY (12/12/12) — SurfKY News first informed readers of the “Fill the Truck” campaign, a partnership between Madisonville Salvation Army and Walmarts of Madisonville and Central City, in a December 5th article (click here for the full article). The toy drive was held for one day only, beginning at 9 a.m. on Saturday, December 8th. By 2 p.m., the Central City team was having more success acquiring donations than was the Madisonville team, according to Salvation Army social worker, Kassy Holmes.

Kassy worked the Madisonville Walmart location throughout the entire drive, accepting donations in a large cardboard box shaped like a Salvation Army truck. The drive lasted until 5 p.m. that evening.

Holmes had help from other volunteers, taking turns at the donation box and standing at both entrances, handing out flyers and ringing the Salvation Army bell. Members of the Madisonville North Hopkins Key Club and Noon Kiwanis Club were there to assist as well.

Holmes said the organization seeks to assist 650 children in Hopkins County and over 100 in Muhlenberg County, providing them with Christmas gifts. They are serving as a “… clearing house for other Christmas assistance programs,” she said.

So far, they have more children than donations, and Holmes hopes to have more support by the time Christmas rolls around in just two weeks. They are accepting donations of new or gently used toys, blankets, coats, food, and anything else suitable for children up to 12 years old.

Anyone wishing to donate may do so at the Salvation Army location on McCoy Avenue in Madisonville between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. daily.
