ALBANY, GA (WALB) – You can help make a wish come true for a child by being one of Santa's helpers.

The Albany Recreation and Parks Department has kicked off its sixth annual Letter to Santa program.

They collected letters from children who will spend the holidays at the Bridge and Liberty House shelters.

They encourage you to pick up a letter and help fulfill Christmas dreams for youngsters in the shelters.

"They told us it just makes their day, they have something to open on Christmas morning like all the other kids in town and the ones they go to school with, it makes them realize that someone cares," said Kristin Caso, Albany Recreation and Parks Department.

Last year the program provided gifts to more than 40 children. You can pick up a letter at the recreation department main office in Tift park.

Presents must be unwrapped and dropped off before December 11th. Click here for more information.
