Salvation Army Captain Clara Gomez briefs volunteers on their distribution procedures before the start of their Empty Stocking and Angel Tree distribution on Thursday morning at the Salvation Amy of Odessa. The Salvation Army Angel Tree program aims to provide toys and clothing to children, seniors and families who might otherwise not be able to provide such items for their loved ones during the holiday season. This year, the Salvation Army of Odessa saw nearly 300 families pre-register to receive donations from the Angel Tree program.
