Leesburg - - Some Lee county foster children will have a brighter Christmas thanks to the police department.

Leesburg police donated boxes of toys and books and almost 40 bicycles to the Division of Family and Children Services.

The gifts were collected from businesses and people in the community since November.

The police chief says it's the department's way of giving back to the community.  

"Its just knowing that you're helping somebody out and the smiles you put on the kids' faces on Christmas morning when they see the new toys that they have," says Police Chief Charles Moore.

This is the fourth year the police department has organized the giveaway.
