The Salvation Army Teams Up With Walmart for Nationwide Toy Drive

Hawaii volunteers and community members to help collect toys for Christmas

Give a holiday miracle to a family in need.

HONOLULU(Nov. 6, 2019) – Walmart and The Salvation Army are joining forces to provide toys to keiki in need during the holidays with toy drive events at all 10 Walmart stores in Hawaii on Saturday, Nov. 9. Each event in Hawaii will run from 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.

The 10 Hawaii stores events are among many stores nationwide taking place in similar toy drives. On November 9, shoppers will receive a list of suggested toy items. To participate, simply stop by and drop off new toys to The Salvation Army at the front of each Walmart store.

“We encourage each of our local island communities to step up and help those in need, especially during this time of year,” said Major Jeff Martin, Divisional Leader for The Salvation Army – Hawaiian & Pacific Islands Division. “The public’s generosity helps The Salvation Army provide thousands of children with Christmas toys they would not receive otherwise.”

Santa will be making visits to every Walmart store on the same day – adding an air of excitement and Christmas cheer to customers’ shopping experience in stores.

For those unable to participate in-store on November 9, The Salvation Army has provided a searchable online registry below comprising all the items needed; each item requires just one click to purchase.

Walmart and The Salvation Army have collaborated for more than 30 years to meet local community needs. Supporters like Walmart help The Salvation Army serve more than 23 million Americans each year through a range of social services, which help families overcome poverty.

All toys given to The Salvation Army at the Hawaii Walmart stores will remain in the local community where they were donated and will help The Salvation Army provide Christmas assistance to thousands of children and families in need across the islands.
