DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Workers from the Coca-Cola Company set out for the Dallas Salvation Army Christmas Center on Wednesday, and while they didn’t deliver any beverages they did make it possible to fill some North Texas Christmas wishes.

Two bright red, Coca-Cola trucks arrived on Harry Hines Boulevard loaded with gifts for local children. The bays of the trucks were rolled open to reveal bright red bags filled with Christmas gifts for hundreds of Salvation Army recipients who were ‘adopted’ by Coca-Cola employees.

In all, company employees donated an estimated 3,280 gifts for 729 children or special-needs adults. The gifts included bicycles, a playhouse, clothes and coats, infant car seats, and lots of MP3 players.

Volunteers and employees unloaded the gifts from the trucks and took them inside the Salvation Army center. Each red bag contained gifts for a specific child or special needs adult. Salvation Army volunteers will spend the next few days sorting through the items and making sure they are delivered to the right location. The gifts will be distributed between December 15 and 20.

There are 15 Salvation Army centers across North Texas.
