Salvation Army Distribution Day

While cars lined the parking lot at the National Peanut Festival Fairgrounds, volunteers lined the agricultural center with bags full of gifts.

1,170 angels will be getting Christmas gifts this year.

Gifts parents like Kurt Washington say they are thankful for.

"It’s truly a blessing. My children can have Christmas this year and they don't have to look down on me and say dad you didn't get me anything for Christmas and I believe that that's truly a blessing,” said Washington.

Residents also received food boxes filled with things like potatoes, bread, vegetables and cake mix.
