HOLLAND, Mich. — The Salvation Army in Holland is providing toys and clothes to more than 1,000 children who may not otherwise receive a Christmas gift.

Over 700 families representing nearly 1,800 children will be shopping from their annual toy shop to pick out gifts donated by local organizations and big box stores.

From Mr. Potato Head to Barbie to stacking blocks, this year the organization received over 6,000 donations from local businesses, Toys for Tots, Menard's, Sam's Club and Benteler Automotive.

Families in Ottawa and Allegan Counties will shop over three days ahead of Christmas starting Friday, December 15. Pre-registration was required.

The Salvation Army also serves families throughout the two counties throughout the year with additional programs like rent and utilities, a food pantry and even ministry opportunities.
