Salvation Army no longer accepts toy donations - just in time for the holidays!

Here's some news - on a regular basis, we load the car up with slightly-used toys, and drive them over to the Manassas Salvation Army collection center...today, we were politely informed that "because of the toy recalls going on, the Salvation Army will no longer accept donations of toys - any toys."

This isn't very good timing - many needy recipients of our pretty well-preserved toys, along with thousands of other donations that markedly start increasing this month, will not get much this Christmas.

I'd encourage other groups perhaps to step up, accept and distribute toy donations if possible.....regardless of the recalls, I'd think there's certainly some broad categories of toys that could still be accepted, like wooden toys for example.
