(WVUE) -

More than 600 families in the greater New Orleans area will be receiving gifts today.

Fox8 has partnered with the Salvation Army for their annual Angel Tree Gift Giveaway.

Thousands of gifts to be given away today, over 1,600 children will have a gift to unwrap.

More than 100 seniors will also be receiving gifts.

Through the generosity of New Orleanians this year, children in the Angel Tree program will be receiving two gifts each.

Gifts include everything from toys to bikes. There are rooms full of bikes and a whole room full of gifts.

There is still time to drop off generic unwrapped gifts. Toys are preferred and there is a need for gifts for teens.

But donations for ages 1-14 will also be accepted.
