The gifts will be loaded in trucks and vans, each intended for a specific age group. A team of Marines, VIHA and volunteers will assist with guiding the children to the right line for their age group. The teams will have rosters to verify the age, gender and resident status of each child receiving gifts.

The teams will gather at the Farm Pod warehouse, a large building just west of Leatherback Brewing in the William Roebuck Industrial Park at 8 a.m. Additional volunteers would be welcomed.
