Volunteers from APS came together Tuesday to distribute toys to Phoenix families in need. The toys were collected through the Salvation Army's Christmas Angel program.

The Salvation Army chose over 50,000 children to be Christmas Angels this year. All of those kids were 'adopted' by members of the community and will receive gifts from their wish lists.

It takes the work of an army of volunteers to make it all happen and APS was one of the groups to step up.

Volunteers from APS handed out the gifts as cars filled with families lined up around the block at the Salvation Army's Phoenix office.

With the help of the community and volunteers, over 50,000 families will have some Christmas magic this year.
