Demand for Salvation Army toy distribution greater than collection

Take it as a sign of the troubled economic times, but Ozaukee High School officials are concerned that the demand for gifts through the annual Salvation Army toy drive is going to be greater than the items collected.

The toy campaign is being conducted by the school’s National Honor Society. Toys for needy families will be distributed from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 12 at the high school, 401 Highland Dr.

The sign-up period for needy families looking for help during the Christmas gift-giving time concluded Monday, but requests for assistance have not stopped.

Donations have been steady, but gift-giving has failed to match past years.

Students picked up a single barrel of toys at the Walmart store in Saukville this weekend. In the past, the site had yielded as many as six barrels of toys.

To ensure that children have a gift-filled Christmas, additional toys may be dropped off at the high school office through Friday, Dec. 11.

For more information, call the school office at 692-2453.
