Bartell Drugs and the Salvation Army are extending the “Toy ‘N’ Joy” drive through this Friday to help meet the growing demand of holiday gifts for children in need. New, unwrapped toys collected at all 58 Bartell Drugs locations — including the Edmonds store at 23028 100th Ave. W. — will be distributed to low-income families before Christmas through the Salvation Army’s “toy warehouses.”
“A growing number of families cannot afford toys during challenging economic times, and they look to the Salvation Army to receive donated gifts,” said George D. Bartell, Chairman and CEO of Bartell Drugs. “The generosity and support of our customers over the past seven years has been gratifying.”

* Choose a “gift request tag” from the “Toy ‘N’ Joy” display in the store and return the gift to the donation barrel with the tag affixed to it.
