ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Albany Recreation and Parks Department wants to make a few wishes come true this holiday season.

They've launched their Letter to Santa and Mayor's Motorcade holiday campaigns and need the community's help filling the lists. Letters to Santa have been collected from more than 50 children at The Bridge and Liberty House.

You can pick up a letter at the Albany Recreations and Parks Office in Tift Park from 10 to five daily through December fifth. There are plenty of letter to pick from.

"You can pick a boy or a girl, some people like teenagers, some people like to pick a letter that matches their own childs age and so they can have their child kind of help pick out the gifts and so it's a lot of fun," said Kristin Caso, Albany Recreation and Parks Department Special Projects director.

The office is also collecting gifts for the Mayor's Motorcade which brings gifts to the patients at Southwestern State Hospital in Thomasville. Without the program many patients would ve forgotten during the holidays.

A majority of the patients are men and the Recreation Department suggests gift like personal care items, casual clothing, puzzles, games, or movies. Those items should be turned in unwrapped by December 8th.
