CHICO, Calif. - Santa's helpers are hard at work Wednesday morning in Chico, bringing toys and food to nearly 300 families who lost their homes in the Camp Fire.

The Salvation Army will distribute toys and food boxes to nearly 300 families from the Paradise area who were affected by the Fire.

At the distribution, more than 900 toys and 300 food boxes will be given out.

The families registered for the holiday assistance during a one-week period last month.

This will be the first of two consecutive days in which the Salvation Army will distribute holiday gifts in Chico.

They'll hand them out in a drive-thru style, families can pull up and don't even need to get out of the car.

It's happening today and tomorrow from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. at 13290 Contractors Lane in Chico.

The Salvation Army staff and more than 20 volunteers will be on hand.
