Boston, Georgia-- For the first time, Toys for Tots is reaching out to a small community in Thomas County.

The project is sponsored by the Boston Community Club. Thursday, 125 children were given a box of toys each. Also, about 75 families got a box of food, packed with canned goods and meats.

"They do not have anything, and for me to give them a toy, and for the whole community to give them a toy, it's really just going to make their day," says organizer, Judy Ramnauth.

The community club says it's planning a repeat for next year since the first round was so successful.
