ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  Organizations that help others are finding they're in need of everything including clothes and toys to wrap for their children. One group is helping to fill that need and they do it year after year.

Ervin Fulton with Phi Beta Sigma's graduate chapter has organized a clothing giveaway at Fulton gym for the past ten years.

He's had about 60 people show up to receive sweaters, slacks, and toys.Fulton says the clothes were piled high earlier and as people came in the amount dwindled away.

"I'm pretty sure everybody appreciates receiving things no matter where they go," Fulton said. "It's just about giving back."

Lekyla Johnson and her brothers and sisters benefited from Fulton's giving back.

"I felt good and surprised, Johnson said. "I really love my clothes because they look pretty for me and I really really love Christmas."

Fulton still had clothes leftover. He packed them up, and took them to the Albany Rescue Mission which gives food and clothes to people in need.

This giving is another way for Fulton and volunteers to keep a kind tradition on it's feet year after year. Charity giving is down about 70 percent this year for the Toys for Tots program. Volunteers says that's every reason to keep giving.
