With Christmas only a few days away, families who were affected by the June floods are in dire needs. These families that lost everything are on the receiving end of holiday giving. The Salvation Army’s disaster services organization out of Charleston gave families bags of toys, so their kids would be able to open a few presents come Christmas morning. They were able to help over a hundred kids have a merry Christmas this year, despite everything that they went through. Captain Bob Mullins, Salvation Army Emergency Disaster Services Coordinator, told us “After a flood especially, you know we’ve been helping them long before that. When you see that they have nothing, you know everything washed down the, down the creeks that became a river, so it’s just important for them to know that people care.” Captain Mullins also said that when he was younger, he experienced Christmases without gifts, so he empathizes with many of the flood victims.
