VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WVEC) — Thousands of Hampton Roads kids in need are getting some special gifts. The Salvation Army is making sure kids don’t go without this holiday season. Thursday kicked off their Christmas Depot distribution in Virginia Beach.
“Just amazing that people that don’t know you and what you’re going through, and just have the big heart to buy for your kids. It’s just great,” said Christine Cain.
The Salvation Army told 13NewsNow more than 8,000 kids are getting gifts. They get everything from clothes collected through Angel Tree, to toys and food. Not only are families grateful, so are volunteers.
“It’s just gratifying to see everybody come through and the happiness and joy that we can bring.” said one volunteer.
The distribution center will also be open Dec. 14-15 and Dec. 18-20 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and again from 1 to 4 p.m.
