500 local families get early Christmas

500 local families get an early Christmas thanks to the Salvation Army.

The agency is holding its annual Adopt-a-Family program on Friday.

Sponsors from across the tri-state adopt families in need for the holidays, donating presents in time for Christmas.

Families will pick up those presents at Cincinnati Mall in Fairfield beginning at 10:00 a.m.
