Thomasville, Georgia-- Christmas will be a little brighter for dozens of patients at Southwestern State Psychiatric Hospital in Thomasville.

Thursday morning, representatives from all over our region brought carloads of gifts to the facility. Dubbed the "Mayor's Motorcade," the project has been happening for 59 years statewide, and 39 years in Southwest Georgia.

Hospital staff say some of their patients would otherwise be alone for Christmas. "It helps them to know that someone thought of them on Christmas day. And that's what's really important, that someone cares about them, and there's a real spirit of hope and faith," says Administrator, Beverly Bajerski.

The gifts given range from clothes and games to money and toys. More than 15 municipalities were represented.
