Port Alberni Toy Run makes food donation to Salvation Army

Salvation Army received $1,000 worth of groceries

The Port Alberni Toy Run made a special delivery to the Salvation Army earlier this month.

On Dec. 8, members of the Port Alberni Toy Run delivered $1,000 worth of groceries from Quality Foods to the Salvation Army.

Like many other organizations in town, the Toy Run has lost funds this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the Toy Run has been able to make up some of this lost revenue with the sale of cuddly teddy bears wearing Port Alberni Toy Run shirts.
