The Salvation Army of Chatham County has requests for over 1000 toys to make it a special holiday for those in need. This is for both Pittsboro and Siler City. You can put a smile on a kid’s face and help make those wishes come true by donating an unwrapped toy.

The younger kids would like toys, games, and dolls, and the older kids would like sports equipment, such as soccer balls, basketballs, and baseballs and gloves.

There is also a need for coats in good condition for those suffering from the pandemic.

Salvation Army volunteers will be at The Gathering Place from 9 am to noon on Saturday, Nov. 13 and 20, to collect your thoughtful donations of unwrapped toys and gently used clean coats.

The SunTrust Bank in Fearrington Village will have a collection box in their lobby from Tuesday, Nov. 9, to Tuesday, Dec. 7.

Questions, call Bob Holton 919-545-0810.

Thank you for your generosity.
