'Fill the Truck' campaign today

COAL TOWNSHIP - The local Salvation Army chapter is hoping to "Fill the Truck" today at Walmart Supercenter.

Shoppers are encouraged to purchase new toys and coats for children and help the Salvation Army fill a cube truck that will be parked outside the store from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The truck is being donated for the day's use by Knoebels.

The items will be distributed to needy local families this holiday season.
