Emergency workers turn Santa

December 22, 2005

Cairo, Georgia-- The Cairo Fire Department and the Grady County Sheriff's Office are teaming up to brighten Christmas for children in the community.

They have collected hundreds of gifts for needy children. It's a collaboration launched by the Grady County school board, which identified the kids. Firefighters say they're going to play Santa Claus for them on Christmas morning.

"It's going to bring tears to your eyes because some of these kids are really needy, needy kids. And it's just an honor that we could do something. We're fortunate to be able to do this," says CFD Lieutenant, James Davis.

Thirteen children will get the gifts. They each get a box filled with toys, games, and clothes, donated by volunteers across Grady County.
