LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - With one week until Christmas, dozens of people are loading up their gifts from the annual Christmas store.

Cars lined up and people waited patiently in the freezing cold Wednesday morning for the doors to open. Some got in line as early as 10:00 Tuesday night.

It's the 18th year for the annual Faith and Community Christmas store. This year it's being held at the Southland Christian Church campus on Richmond Road.

Those in need can come and get new and used toys for their children. All of the toys are free of charge and officials say no financial questions will be asked.

It's a one-stop shop for parents who can pick up everything from toys, stuffed animals and books to clothes, bikes and even a Christmas tree.

Shoppers say this event is something they rely on and appreciate.

"I got a doll house," says Virginia Campbell, a shopper. "I got remote control cars. Purses for my daughter and I got little jewelry boxes full of jewelry. I mean its just a blessing."

The store will be open Wednesday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Volunteers are still needed to help shoppers. If you'd like to help out, visit the link below.

The church's pastor tweeted Wednesday they need coats, blankets, bikes, and toys for the Christmas Store.
