MIDLAND, TX (KWES) - The Soup Kitchen in Midland is getting ready for Christmas.

On Friday, more than 500 kids will receive gifts this holiday.

On Thursday, volunteers wrapped up those gifts to be handed out.

The owner of the soup kitchen, Nancy Ivy, thanks the community for the success.

"I just want to say thank you to the Midland community for always, over 30 years, getting together when we're in need and get us either the hams or the turkeys that we need. I just want to thank Midland for that," said Ivy.

Ivy says everyone is invited and no one will leave without a gift.

The event kicks off Friday from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m.
