Guam - The season of giving continues to spread, as the Guam Naval Officer's Spouses Club donated $2,000 worth of toys to the Salvation Army's Santa's Toy Shop Program. Salvation army social worker Patrick Camacho says the boost of donations will go inline with providing toys to children who come from families who don't have the extra income to purchase toys during Christmas.

"So our Santa's Toy Shop Program our goal is to bring joy and smiles to these children's faces by giving them a gift on Christmas Day," Camacho said.

This is the third year the Guam Naval Officer's Spouses Club has donated toys to the program. The Salvation Army has since received thousands of toys from Imco General Construction, Dewitt, the Guam Running Club, Guam AGA, Twinkles and the Marines Toys for Tots program. On Monday, the Salvation Army will receive about a thousand toys from the Chinese Chamber of Commerce.

Toys will be distributed between December 21-23 to nearly 300 registered families.
