HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – Salvation Army volunteers have turned a donated building in Huntsville into Santa’s Workshop.

They’re working seven hours a day to organize toys donated to the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program.

Children whose families meet certain need-based criteria are eligible for the program.

Each child submits a wish-list, which is then picked up and filled by donors.

Once the gifts are returned, the volunteers get them ready for distribution.

This year, the program will provide gifts to more than 3,000 children.

Distribution day is set for December 16th. Some help is still needed to fill the lists of angels who were not adopted.

Volunteers will be on-hand to accept toys from 9am-4pm December 10th, 11th and 12th at 355 Quality Circle in Huntsville.
