MEDFORD, Ore. -- The Salvation Army is asking for toys for teenagers and preteens this holiday season.

Major Angelina Koenig with the Salvation Army says things like gift cards and electronics are good options. She also suggests things like purses, belts, model cars and helicopters. 

For the younger age groups, she says to donate toys with educational value, like legos or art supplies.

The Salvation Army and Newswatch 12 are teaming up for the Season for Sharing Holiday Toy & Food Drive. It runs until Tuesday, December 19th.


Season for Sharing is an annual event that supports the Salvation Army’s efforts to provide a holiday meal for families in need and a few gifts to kids who otherwise would not have a Christmas.

The Salvation Army typically helps about 2,000 kids have at least 3 presents under the tree and last year nearly 1,000 families received a Christmas meal because of our efforts. The generosity last year was unprecedented.
