Willmar, Minn., students make substantial donation to Salvation Army toy drive


WILLMAR — This Christmas, more than 1,000 local children will have gifts under the tree thanks to some generous donations — including one from 130 eighth-grade students.

On Wednesday, eighth-graders from Willmar Middle School presented the Salvation Army with a check for $1,015, which will go toward the Salvation Army’s holiday toy drive. Teacher Sally Wilson’s six eighth-grade social studies classes raised the money over the past two weeks.
