ALBANY, GA (WALB) –Employees at the Dougherty District Attorney's office give Christmas Gifts to teenagers who are going through difficult times.

Twenty teens who live at the Open Arms Shelter got gift bags.

The bags include winter jackets, sweaters, and personal gifts.

The D.A. staff work closely with Open Arms to help the homeless, runaway and abused children they serve.

Open Arms Executive Director Fonda Strong said  "There are so many children who come into Open Arms with just the shirt and shoes and pants on their body. So we are so thankful, with the winter season coming in, to have these coats."

The D.A. employees also made a cash donation to help make it a Merry Christmas for the children served by Open Arms.
