The Salvation Army begins its annual distribution of toys and food in Grand Junction on Wednesday and there are some important things recipients need to know.

Distribution will be out of the Salvation Army main office at 1235 N. 4th Street, which means space is going to be extremely limited and recipients will be asked for special cooperation.

The distribution begins at 8AM and recipients are asked to come at their assigned times becomes of limited parking availability. There will, however, be help available to get  your items into your vehicle.

No children will be allowed inside the building during distribution, so arrangements should be made for the children in advance of pick up. Only one family member will be allowed inside to receive the gifts.

This distribution is exclusively for recipients who have applied for and have been approved for assistance.

The Salvation Army has expressed great gratitude for the community's assistance in providing for those in need during the holiday season.

All of here at KOOL 107.9 would also like to thank everyone who participated in this year's toy drive, and special thanks to our television partner News Channel 5 KREX.
