Toys for Tots

Dheaven (cq) Webber waves good-bye to Santa after he, his sister Promise Caruthers and mom Monica Ayers received Christmas gifts from The Salvation Army’s Angel Toy & Joy store at the Tacoma Elks Lodge. The Salvation Army, in association with the Elks and Toys for Tots, anticipates handling out toys and food for 1,700 to 2,000 Pierce County families from Thursday through Saturday. Local Walmart stores donated 340 bicycles and $25,000 cash.
