KINGSPORT – Scores of community volunteers turned out Wednesday evening to help out at the annual Santa Train Packing Party at the Food City on North Eastman Road. They helped mix, bag and box tons of foodstuffs that will be distributed from the Santa Train on Saturday.
This year marks the Santa Train's 76th annual run from Shelby, Ky., to downtown Kingsport. Counting those beginning and ending points, food, clothes, toys and other gifts will be handed out at 14 stops along the 110-mile rail route.
For more details about the train, including stops and scheduled stop times, read the Friday print version of the Kingsport Times News or check online later at www.timesnews.net.
