Salvation Army officials are now scrambling for a temporary replacement site this Christmas, while a more permanent location is found for 2018. Time is short, too. Major Larry Broome, head of Charlotte’s Salvation Army, says his agency would like to confirm a site this summer, because the process of ordering and storing toys begins months in advance. Registration follows in October, and not long after that, a crew will begin building thousands of bicycles.
