KSBY's Season of Hope food and toy drive ends this Friday, but there's still plenty of time to make a donation.

Jay Bond of Bond Real Estate Group dropped by the San Luis Obispo Salvation Army on Wednesday to drop off a box of dolls, toy trucks, Transformers, superheroes, and a bicycle.

"It's been a really rough year for folks with COVID, business shutdowns, etc. I know that list goes on," said Bond. "Some families have been impacted more than others but still it's been a real severe year and we want to do everything we can to try and give back and help people out especially in this time of year."

The Salvation Army says the need for donations is greater this year because of COVID-19.

In addition to food and toys, local charities say financial donations go a long way.
