Americus - - Some Southwest Georgia parents get a chance to do the right thing and make their child's holiday special. 

The Office of Child Support Services hosted a Settlement Day in Americus Thursday to get parents back on track with their child support payments

More than 400 people paid up. Organizers say many of them would not have made the extra effort to catch up without this special program.

They want to make sure children get the financial support they need.

"We know the holidays are coming up and we want to give the kids some extra money for the Christmas Holidays," says Kay Daniel.

The office will work with parents who are unable to pay as long as they show interest.

During last year's Settlement Day, they collected about $109,000. They hope to surpass that this year.
