Volunteers Wrap Gifts For Salvation Army's Toy Ministry Program

MILWAUKEE - The salvation army is making sure kids, who have parents behind bars, have the best holiday season possible.

Hundreds of volunteers wrapped gifts as part of the Salvation Army's Prison Toy Ministry Program.

Parents who are in jail requested holiday gifts for their kids that were found in a catalog that the Salvation Army put together. The program is a way to keep parents and kids connected during Christmas.

"This is a voluntary program, it's something that the parents don't have to opt in to, but if they choose to, they can pick out a toy and also write a letter to their child," said Rachel Greenwood with the Salvation Army.

The program started 62 years ago. Last year, it provided four thousand gifts to children.
