ALBANY, GA (WALB) –Law enforcement officials in Lee County spent the afternoon playing Santa Claus delivering toys for kids in need.

For the 7th year the Leesburg police department has teamed up with the Sheriff's office in an effort to provide toys for foster kids in need.

This afternoon the special SWAT team unit vehicle delivered a truck load of bikes, dolls and other toys to the Department of Family and Child services building in Leesburg.

The Police chief says a total of eight businesses were involved and were drop off points for the toys.

"It makes me feel great knowing that we are coming out helping the kids that normally wouldn't have anything unless we came out and helped them ," said Chief Charles Moore with the Leesburg Police Department.

Law enforcement officials say they were able to help 18 kids or more with the donations.
