Over 2,000 volunteer to help others on Christmas

Posted at 6:14 PM, Dec 24, 2015

Hot meals, hugs and a whole lot more with thousands of volunteers who are taking action to help others during the holiday season. 

Boxes stacked on tables with care. 

Helping hands everywhere. 

Off in the distance, a Christmas tree aglow. 

2,500 volunteers making the Salvation Army's Christmas dinner a go!

The Salvation Army is expecting 5,500 guests to come in and have a sit down meal with them, and they're delivering 3,500 meals to homes across the Valley. 

This massive effort wouldn't be possible without the work of the selfless volunteers who give up their personal time during the holidays to help others. 

Besides the dinner, guests can take pictures with Santa, get free haircuts, make free phone calls around the country and there will even be a game room for kids. Everyone who attends will leave with a free gift too. 

If you'd like to join in on the charitable fun with the Salvation Army, their doors open at 9:30 a.m. on Christmas morning and Christmas dinner begins at 11:30 a.m. The event is free and open to all to attend.
