MEDFORD, Ore. -- Today the Salvation Army distributed hundreds of toys and clothes to families in need for Christmas.

Volunteers pulled together to make sure everything got done after a flood ruined a large amount of toys the night before the donations were to be given away.

One volunteer who has been serving for 11 years said that she worked a 17 hour day, along with others, to get everything cleaned and ready to go.

Today, donations were still coming in while families were lining up to receive them.

Thanks to the community’s generosity and the Salvation Army's hard work, families in need will be able to have presents under the tree.
