Albany - Santa Claus has lots to do Christmas Eve, and lots of homes to visit. That's why he took time to make sure some very special children got an early visit today.

Santa and Mrs. Claus were at Phoebe Putney Hospital Tuesday handing out toys to all the little ones who have been good but feel pretty bad.

Albany area Masons and Shriners helped collect toys for Santa to give out. Tiffany Downs has a seven month old who may be hospitalized through Christmas, so she really appreciates the visit.

"We were going to take him to see Santa, but then he got sick, so we couldn't take him," said Downs.

Santa and his crew also visited Neonatal intensive care unit and the emergency center. This is the 10th year the bundles of toys program has been in operation.
