Salvation Army's toy distribution event at Crossroads Mall: Dec. 19, 2012 6/20

T. J. Suetopka lifts a large box into the back of a client's car as Katy Weaver pulls other bags of gifts and toys from the shopping cart. Weaver and Suetopka are part of about two dozen volunteers from Oklahoma County Commissioner Brian Maughan's SHINE project, a volunteer community service campaign. The Salvation Army and Feed the Children teamed to distribute bicycles and toys for children, and handed out boxes of food for families at their annual distribution event Wednesday, Dec. 19, 2012. Salvation Army officials said 100 volunteers helped make the event go smoothly. The volunteers loaded bags of toys and bikes into vehicles of clients who had been pre-approved for assistance. Many of the gifts were provided through the Salvation Army's Angel Tree program Photo by Jim Beckel, The Oklahoman
