Many of the some 300 volunteers needed for the Salvation Army's toy distribution came from generous employers.

For their part, Cox employees James Steele and Mitchell Hayes help Salvation Army Women's Auxiliary member Sharron Ashton manage the mountains of 30-inch-by-30-inch boxes required for the massive toys distribution, including immediately breaking down and whisking away the emptied ones so they can be used for several years to come.
Christmas 2013 will be here before we know it. Plan now to join me in giving ourselves the best present possible: the gift of giving. To volunteer, contact The Salvation Army, 311 SW 5, at 246-1101 or www.salvationarmyokcac.org. If you're unable to give time, financial gifts also can be made to The Salvation Army, P.O. Box 2095, Oklahoma City, OK 73101.
