MEDFORD, Ore.- Over 1,000 toys have been collected so far through Banner Bank barrels. But the Salvation Army needs 5-7,000 toys to fill the need for families this holiday season.

Salvation Army volunteers started their day cleaning its new temporary warehouse and hours later it's filled with over a 1,000. 

Cindy Sasser, a Salvation Army Volunteer says, "We went from cobwebs cleaning and bathroom cleaning to getting this amazing amount of the first load of stuff coming in and you can see just what the community has provided so far. Now its just sorting and trying to arrange it so when we package it for the families we'll know where to get the things."

This afternoon the Maslow Project donated hundreds of books to the holiday toy and food drive. That's on top of the thousands of items community members have already donated to Banner Banks across our region.

Major Jason Koenig says, "We have about 1800 kids we're trying to provide for in Jackson County and so we still have a couple thousand more toys to be able to provide for so we're still asking people to give into those barrels over at banner bank. If you see an angel tag at the store to still provide because we have a lot of work ahead of ourselves this week."

Over 500 families will pick up toys next Thursday. The Salvation Army will be collecting donations until December 19th.
