Cairo, Georgia-- A truckload of Christmas spirit is on its way from South Georgia to the victims of Hurricane Katrina.

District Attorney Joe Mulholland is taking $50,000 worth of gifts to Pascagoula, Mississippi. The project is a partnership between his office, the Marine Corps Logistics Base in Albany, and the Family Worship Center in Cairo.

Mulholland says some of the families in Pascagoula lost everything in Katrina. "They are in a time of dire need, and it's great that Southwest Georgia has come together to help them through churches, through our soldiers at the Marine Corps Logistics Base. It's just unbelievable," he says.

Just to give you an idea of how many gifts there are, the truck Mulholland is using is 26 feet long and 12 feet tall. It's packed with toys, books, and games.
