Christmas is a time where we are constantly searching for the best gift to give. 

Westergard Ford and The Salvation Army teamed up this year for their annual Toys for Tots and Angel Tree event.t4t2Santa and Mrs. Clause meet and greet

"This is our fourth year. I guess it's because I love Christmas, and I love seeing little kids on Christmas day get the gifts they asked for. So, it was just one way of helping out The Salvation Army," explained Tiffany Andrew from Westergard Ford.

This year, the campaign held a family fun day on December 1, where kids could participate in carriage rides, face painting and pictures with Santa with the donation of an unwrapped toy.

"For the first two years it was just Toys for Tots, and last year The Salvation Army brought the Angel Tree over. The Angel Tree has a specific kid with a file number and their wish for Christmas. It is all over the board, sometimes it is a specific toy or a piece of Lego, or winter boots, sweaters, long sleeve shirt and board games," continued Andrew.

The Angel Tree campaign has about 30 more gifts to be fulfilled and will be up until December 11.

"I have one group that always come in, and they have four children. One little girl says 'I love Christmas day, and I am just so glad that I get to make someone else's Christmas too.' So that is pretty sweet when the kids get involved and understand," concluded Andrew.
