Salvation Army hands out donations from Toy Convoy to families in need

ROCKINGHAM COUNTY, Va. (WHSV) — After more than a week collecting toys, the Harrisonburg Salvation Army saw its hard work pay off on Thursday.

The Salvation Army filled up part of the Rockingham County Fairgrounds with bikes and bags of toys for kids.

The organization gathered all the toys it received during Toy Convoy and gave them away to those in need.

WHSV spoke to a woman who received toys for her family. She was nearly at a loss for words to express how thankful she was.

"This means too much for me," Muna Ali, an immigrant from Iraq, said. "If someone from this country, and I'm from a different country, it's, like, too much. Thankful for this country to help."

Ali said she has lived in America for nearly a decade and is always thankful for help from the Salvation Army.

The organization gave away toys for about 500 families Thursday.
