The Salvation Army to host 2022 Christmas Distribution Event
Volunteers return to an in-person experience of giving toys and food
The Salvation Army of Greater Rochester’s annual Christmas Toy and Food Distribution Shop is happening today, Monday, Dec. 12th through Thursday Dec. 15th. Those who have pre-registered for this event will receive toys for their children and food baskets to prepare a holiday meal.
Families will “shop” this week for children’s gifts inside the West Avenue location of The Salvation Army. This tradition is welcomed back by more than 5,000 people who will be gifted food and more than 4,500 children who will receive toys, hats, gloves and other items at The Salvation Army’s holiday assistance event.
This year, more than two hundred volunteers and several community businesses, groups and partners have teamed up with The Salvation Army to donate time and necessary items. Rochester’s community has holistically come together to make the Toy Shop as successful distribution for those in need.
