Duluth Salvation Army receives a truck load of toys from Mid-State Truck Service
Wednesday, Mid-State Truck Service donated their yearly donation of toys to the Duluth Salvation Army.
This year they spent $13,000 dollars on toys and dropped them off with their semi. Operating Manager Mike Cooper says, “To tell you that it’s heart warming is probably an understatement. I mean just to be able to be apart of the community, to see us being able to help the community. It’s not about notoriety, it’s not about fame, it’s about helping your fellow human being.”
This year inflation has impacted the Salvation Army. Captain Elysia Nordan says, “With many of our services, we’re noticing inflation having an impact. We are noticing it not only with our toys but also with our food shelf.”
She says despite inflation, they still want to give back to others, “For the littlest ones in our community, they don’t understand inflation, they don’t understand prices, they don’t understand all these things that are going on around them.”
Elysia also mentions that gifts for teenagers was a big focus this year.
