NAPLES, Fla.- Although the Salvation Army of Collier County has increased the number of families and children served this year, there is a shortage of donated toys and age-appropriate gifts for infants and children ages 10-12.

Toys for infants and children are down 25% from last year as well as bicycles.  One hundred bicycles are still needed.

If you are able to help, please bring an unwrapped gift for an infant or child (ages 10-12) by Wednesday, December 19 to the Salvation Army Toy Store located at 2100 Trade Center Way between 9.00 am and Noon, or you can drop it off at 3180 Estey Avenue in Naples.

Your help is greatly appreciated.

Last season over 10,000 individuals received holiday gifts, toys and food from The Salvation Army.
