Valdosta - Christmas came early for some South Georgia children Thursday.

Kids living at the New Horizons Homeless Shelter opened dozens of Christmas gifts from the City of Valdosta. The city was only going to buy them coats and gloves to wear in the Christmas parade next week, but it turned out to be much more. "I got boots, a hat, a jacket, and a toy," said Ronnie Reed.

"It just brings so much joy to these children, for them to get the things most people can get any day of the year, and it would not have been possible without the city," said Angela Rothrock, Shelter Director.

Families at the shelter were also treated to Thanksgiving dinner provided by Steel's Jewelry.
