Tifton- More than 250 South Georgia foster children will receive a suitcase full of Christmas gifts thanks to the Patticake House child advocacy center and the Georgia State Patrol.
Dozens of troopers and volunteers spent the morning packing the luggage. Each child will receive two sets of clothing, a pair of pajamas, and at least one toy. Each suitcase or duffel bag has been monogrammed with the child's initials.
The Patticake House also received $15,000 in donations to purchase additional gifts for the children.
"We saw kids that were actually leaving our center and going into a home with a trash bag full of what they owned, and we wanted them to have something of their own with their initial on it, or their name on it," says Patti Stafford of the Patticake House.
The suitcases will be made available for foster parents to pick up at DFACS offices in Tift, Turner, Irwin, and Worth Counties.
