It's starting to feel a lot like Christmas at The Salvation Army. 

The organization is distributing toys to 4,000 children in Tucson. 

The Salvation Army is ready to distribute more than 22,000 toys to local children in need, and many of you were a part of it.

The Salvation Army is always there to serve the community and "as a child you want to wake up with something on Christmas," spokesperson Corey Leith explained. 

Getting to the big give away is not an easy task. A group of 300 volunteers organized the Christmas Center on the organization's behalf.

Tables will be set up for age groups and gender. Every child will be receiving books this year along with their gift.
