St. Louis (KSDK) - The Salvation Army has run out of toys for its annual Toy Town social service program.

The level of need this year surpassed what the Salvation Army had expected, leaving them with nothing to distribute for the second day of the two day program.

"We've run into a situation this year that hasn't happened in the 19 years I've worked at The Salvation Army; we ran out of toys," said Angie Merseal, Special Events Director.

The second walk-in day is slated for Friday, December2, and The Salvation Army is in desparate need of help to provide the nearly 2800 toys needed. Beck said the majority of toys needed are for children ages 5-16, especially boys ages 9-and-up.

If you would like to help, you can bring a new, unwrapped toy to the Salvation Army's Family Haven located at 10740 West Page Ave. tonight or tomorrow. You can also make a financial contribution at
