Salvation Army Capt. Laurie Reilly prepares a Christmas hamper at the Salvation Army warehouse on Thursday.
The Salvation Army elves are busy preparing hampers for struggling families.
“The generosity of Moose Jaw has been overwhelming,” said Salvation Army Capt. Laurie Reilly. “Every kid will get a toy.”
She said she expects the Salvation Army to make between 170 and 180 hampers this year, which is about the same number as last year.
“We’ve had, I would say, about 25 new families, but 25 other families have either not needed it or moved away,” said Reilly.
