Quad Cities, USA: The Salvation Army of the Quad Cities Christmas Assistance Program – offering a Christmas food box and toys to clients who signed up in November -– is The Salvation Army’s largest outreach event each year.

The Angel Tree collection is finished, and the toys will now make up the toy shop in which parents can choose toys for their children. We expect that over 2,000 children to have a brighter Christmas because of this program.

The Food Boxes were packed on Friday night – 2,300 of them – and families and individuals comprised of 5,524 people will have food in their cupboards, and a nice Christmas meal on their table.

Generous Quad Cities residents, businesses and civic groups make this program possible with their donations.

For 2011, the Food Box Distribution and Toy Shoppe will occur by appointment only.

The press is invited for interviews and filming of this program on:

Davenport Corps, 3400 W. Central Park Drive

Tuesday, December 20 @10am – 4pm

Wednesday, December 21 @ 9am - 4pm

Heritage Temple Corps, 2200- 5th Avenue, Moline

Tuesday, December 20 @ 10am – 4pm
