Salvation Army helped nearly 200 kids get winter clothes
YAKIMA, Wash.- Two organizations and several local volunteers left kids with a big smile on their face today.
The Salvation Army, dozens of supportive locals, and Walmart on Nob Hill in Yakima teamed up to help provide kids with warm clothes for the winter. Volunteers paired up with a kid and helped them get a few items to put underneath their Christmas tree.
"I want to thank the Salvation Army for letting people volunteer and taking kids to this Walmart. It's so big, it has a lot of amazing stuff," said Osvaldo, one of the kids who took clothes home today.
For more than 30 years The Salvation Army has helped provide clothes for kids in need. Members of The Salvation Army say the amount of donations and support from the local community is what has made this event possible.
