Guam - The island will have many ecstatic children come Christmas Day as this year more than 1,000 gifts and toys valued at more than $20,000 will be donated to the Salvation Army to help warm the hearts of hundreds of children this holiday season. First Lady Joann G. Camacho will join president of the Chinese Chamber of Commerce of Guam George Lai, former commerce president Alfred Lam, Jack Chen and Peter Lai, the chair and vice-chair of the toy drive, respectively, and other members of the commerce to present the gifts to the Salvation Army.

The donation is scheduled to take place tomorrow afternoon at 2pm at the Community Hall of the Salvation Army in Tiyan. On behalf of CCCG members who each donated toys to the charitable cause, Lai says his members were more than happy to give back to the community.
