Tifton group needs your help to bring Christmas cheer

May 26, 2008

Tifton -- You may think it's too early to be thinking about Christmas, but one Tift County organization doesn't.

The Tift County Navigators Team is a new organization that will provide help and resources to parents of children with special needs.

They are currently collecting books that will be given out to these families, and others who are not able to afford Christmas gifts for their children.

"We are really excited to have an organization to help these families; to have a place to go whenever these families need resources and support. Most parents are like, 'where do I go and what do I do.' Now their first stop will be us, and we will give them guidance on what to do next," said Jessica Hall.

The Tift County Navigators Team hopes to collect at least 2,000 books by December 15th. You can drop off books at the United Way office in Tifton.
