Attention people that love kids, and love seeing their eyes light up. Your help is needed this Wednesday and Thursday! You'll be helping families navigate thru the selection of toys at the Rochester Salvation Army's Toy and Joy Shop!

Rebecca Snap and James Rabe

Rebecca Snap, Director of Community Engagement for the Rochester Salvation Army says, "This two-day event allows struggling parents and guardians to “shop” for Christmas presents to give to their children. Volunteers are needed to organize toy donations, help parents select gifts, and more."

Please click here to fill out a volunteer application and select a shift. To apply for Christmas assistance, please call 507-288-3663. There are all kinds of shifts and times, but the most help is needed early in the morning and early afternoon. 

Also, there's still time to drop off gifts at the Sharing Tree at the Apache Mall. Especially needed are gifts for children ages 9 and up. Remember teenagers...hair dryers, makeup, games, and more.
