The Salvation Army’s Tonawanda Corps has received its toys for needy families, days before their distribution on Sunday.
The corps said Tuesday that a miscommunication left it empty-handed when it went to pick up toys from one of its suppliers. But the supplier on Wednesday called it a minor glitch with some paperwork that was quickly resolved.
“The Holiday Partnership will be able to meet its agency partners’ toy needs this year,” according to a spokesperson from Olmsted Center for Sight, which administers the Western New York Holiday Partnership, whose partners include The News Neediest Fund.
“Obviously we want the Holiday Partnership to run as smoothly as possible from donation to delivery. Fortunately, the staff at Olmsted Center for Sight is incredibly committed to this program’s success and work hard to ensure everyone receives what they need when they need it, as quickly as possible.”
