Walmart and The Salvation Army are joining forces to provide toys to keiki in need during the holidays with toy drive events at all 10 Walmart stores in Hawaiʻi this Saturday, Nov. 9. Each event in Hawaiʻi will run from 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
The Hawaiʻi store events are among many similar toy drives taking place nationwide.
On Nov. 9, shoppers will receive a list of suggested toy items. To participate, simply stop by and drop off new toys to The Salvation Army at the front of each Walmart store.
Walmart’s 10 Hawaiʻi store locations include: Kauaʻi – Līhuʻe; Oʻahu – Downtown Honolulu/Fort Street Mall, Honolulu/Keʻeaumoku, Kapolei, Kunia/Waipahu, Mililani, and Pearl City; Maui – Kahului; Hawaiʻi – Hilo and Kailua-Kona.
Santa will be making visits to every Walmart store on the same day, adding an air of excitement and Christmas cheer to customers’ shopping experience in stores.
For those unable to participate in-store on Saturday, The Salvation Army has a searchable online registry  comprising all the items needed.
All toys given to The Salvation Army at the Hawaiʻi Walmart stores will remain in the local community where they were donated and will help The Salvation Army provide Christmas assistance to thousands of children and families in need.
