Local officials give back to community

 By Tayleigh Davis - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  Several families will have toys under their tree and food on their tables after a group of local officials have decided to give back.

Law enforcement and emergency officials from Lee County and Albany donated food to the Fincher family who lost their home in a house fire.

Fire crews and sheriff's deputies gave them turkey and all kinds of food which they say won't be wasted.

Nicole Fincher is currently staying at her in-laws' house in Lee county until they can move into a new place.

"We weren't expecting all that and it's humbling to know someone cares enough and has the love in them to help us out," Fincher said.

Officials packed gifts and food in a S.W.A.T team van and visited several other households to donate to people in need for Christmas.
