Valdosta - An anonymous donor is making Christmas bright for many kids in Valdosta.

Ninety cases of toys were delivered to the Valdosta City School Board of Education as part of the toys for tots program.

The school says most of these toys were from an anonymous good samaritan in the community.

The donation will now make Christmas possible for many students throughout the system who might not have had any gifts at all.

"We have a lot of kids that come back after Christmas and they didn't get anything because the parents are on limited incomes or they are living with grandparents or aunts and uncles so we try and make sure every child gets something," says Deanna Folsom, a social worker for teh School system.

The school system says they receive toys each year but thanks to this donation, this is their biggest year ever.
