The Salvation Army is getting set up at its new distribution location for this Christmas season. The building they used last year was occupied, so they had to find a new one.
On Friday, officials stared cleaning their new warehouse located on Allied Street in Charlottesville.
Distribution for Christmas starts on the 20th, and they hope to begin moving things into the building on Monday.
They are glad they found a place, because their building on Ridge Street is too small for all the work that needs to be done.
"What we have to do is organize all these angels that are out there, and the toys, we have to go through and get them sorted, checked in,” says Melinda Johnson with the Salvation Army. “Then we take the angel stuff that is brought in, if it's not enough we add to it, and we put it in a big family bag."
The Salvation Army expects to serve about 2,000 children this year.
