Southwestern Saskatchewan's generosity shone through again this past weekend.

The final count from the third annual Toys Days is in, with the Swift Current Salvation Army reporting over 500 toys were donated for the three-day event.

"It always blows me away, the generosity of this community," Swift Current Salvation Army's Lieutenant Bill Mailman said. "I just can't get over how much the community is willing to give. It means so much to see just such a selfless community help everybody who needs it."

This year over 375 children were on the non-profit organization's Christmas Hamper program, with Mailman stating the event raised at least one gift for each of them.

"Watching the community come together to fill those bins is a really special feeling," Tyler Lemieux, the general manager at Swift Current's Canadian Tire, said. "Our committment to this event since day one has been to ensure that every child in our community has a gift to open."

This year's event broke the previous record from 2020 of 450 toys.
