More than 175 teens will have a present to open on Christmas morning thanks to the WAHU Stockings program.
Newsplex volunteers were out Thursday morning sorting items like gift cards, clothing, make up and books for teen girls and boys.
WAHU Stockings picks up where the Salvation Army Angel Tree program stops.
"As a community we want to make sure they know they're important and the WAHU Stockings program says, hey we care about you. You're our future in this community and we want you to know that you're important by giving and collecting for them and taking care of them at Christmas," said Major Melinda Johnson, Salvation Army.
Volunteers will be collecting donations until 6:00pm Thursday at 1751 Allied Street in Charlottesville.
In addition to the Newsplex, WAHU Stockings is also sponsored by UVa Community Credit Union and Charlottesville Fashion Square.
