The toy drive will continue through Tuesday, Dec. 14. (Stay tuned for details on WSAV’s big drop-off finale!)
Applications are now open for residents in both the Coastal Empire and Lowcountry. Keep reading for details.
Residents can apply for the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree online at saangeltree.org.
