Riverside Value Drug Mart has teamed up with the Kinsmen Club of Drumheller to help out the less fortunate children for Christmas.
For many years now, the Kinsmen collect funds and toys for the Salvation Army Christmas Hamper program and Riverside matches the donation.
Ray Ainscough of Riverside Value Drug Mart appreciates the partnership with the Kinsmen. "We coordinated with the Kinsmen and we each donated some toys, etc. for the Salvation Army in the spirit of giving this time of year."
On Tuesday, Riverside Value Drug Mart presented what they had collected to the Salvation Army.
"We're overwhelmed on the community support and this is another treat here," remarked Ben Lippers, Captain of the Salvation Army in Drumheller. "We're looking well. I want to thank everybody for that and this is just another example of the community spirit we have here in Drumheller."
The Salvation Army Hamper Program is still in need of some toys for this year. "Seven to twelve girls is the one that we're short on this year. It's amazing how that happens. Sometimes your short other ones (groups) and last year it was a different group."
The Salvation Army appreciates the support from the community but still require some help. If you can help, please drop off toys for the girls group at the Salvation Army across from DrumFM.
