Operation Teddy Bear kicks off Holly...

SALISBURY, Md. - You may have caught a Perdue truck all decked out in holiday decorations if you were traveling through Salisbury Saturday morning.

It's part of Operation Teddy Bear, which takes place the first Saturday every December.

Santa and his convoy of Perdue big rigs take residents of the Holly Center on Snow Hill Road for a ride through the Salisbury Bypass.

The event serves as a kickoff to the holiday season for the residents and staff at the Holly Center.

"The people who live here at the holly center look forward to it, because they know it's the kickoff to Christmas season," says Holly Center CEO Shelly Amick.  "I think everybody brightens up.  It's a really great event and it makes everybody happy."

The event also serves as a great opportunity to volunteer, with about 150 folks donating their time.
