Salvation Army donates toys to local Angel Tree children

Posted: Updated:
SHREVEPORT, La. (KTBS) -

Christmas morning will be much brighter for thousands of local children this year.

The Salvation Army kicked off its first day of the Angel Tree toy distribution today in Shreveport.

Families lined up outside the emergency shelter on Jewella Avenue to pick up their bag of toys.

All of the families have already been screened and approved for the donations, and the Salvation Army says it's heartwarming to be able to help so many children.

"Waking up on Christmas morning without anything under the tree would make a child very sad. And if we can brighten the lives of children so that they have something from Santa Claus, then we as a community have made an impact on a child's life," says Maj. Cherry Craddock.

Over 6,000 local children will receive toys through the Angel Tree, and distribution will continue Wednesday at the facility at 8110 Jewella Avenue.
