BLUE SPRINGS, Miss (WTVA) - A donation of more 2,000 toys will brighten the faces of hundreds of children here in North Mississippi this Christmas.
Tuesday morning Toyota Mississippi's team members joined Santa Claus by donating the toys to the Salvation Army for its Angel Tree program.

Toyota Mississippi also presented the Salvation Army with $20,000 to support the organization's annual holiday feeding program.

"The Salvation Army is one of the organizations we choose to guide their efforts and it's incredible. We have many opportunities for our team members to engage in the community, and they're never ever not able to fulfill the need that is out there. They are so happy to do it," said Mike Botkin, Vice President of Manufacturing.

Toyota has been donating to the Salvation Army's Angel Tree efforts since 2012.
