We have a follow-up to a story about the Gulfport Salvation Army throwing away hundreds of new toys outside its warehouse in Long Beach.
As we first reported on Friday, cartons of un-opened toys were tossed into two large dumpsters. Salvation Army leaders told WLOX News, "we made a mistake and we're sorry".
Monday, the dumpsters are gone but the work continues to clean out the warehouse. More toys and other goods are being salvaged and moved to another location while the organization continues its plea for a new warehouse location.
"We're moving them to our facilities and packing them in just as tight as we can, hoping we can get the balance of our material in our facilities. What we need is warehouse space. We're going to be desperate come November, particularly. But even before then we'll be desperate for a place where we can do our Christmas program," Cherry Craddock with the Gulfport Salvation Army said.
