Thursday kicked off a big weekend for the Salvation Army.

It started with a donation of more than 60 little red wagons for the Salvation Army's Christmas toy drive. The wagons were donated by Miner's, Inc., which owns Super One, and Frito Lay.

"About 2,800 kids are getting toys," said Gordon Mesedahl, director of development for the Salvation Army. "Some kids are going to be really thrilled about this."

Patrick Miner made the delivery Thursday morning. It's the second year the two companies have partnered on this project.

"It became a hit last year," he said. "We wanted to partner again with Frito Lay to be able to build a promotion where we could also deliver as many as we delivered last year down to the Salvation Army, if not more."

Miner's is also matching donations to Salvation Army kettles at 13 Super One locations through Christmas Eve.

In addition, on Friday and Saturday, all Salvation Army donations in Minnesota and North Dakota are matched by an anonymous group of donors who put together $2 million.
