ALBANY, GA (WALB) - South Georgians were filled with the spirit of holiday giving during a toy drive Saturday morning. Two boxes overflowed with donated toys only two hours into a Toys for Tots drive at the Albany Holiday Inn.

Several organizations came together to support the drive. This year, The Marine Corps is seeing more requests after adding more organizations to distribute toys to. The Artesian City Car Club says they are happy to help meet those needs.

"I think this is what to me society is all about.We need to give and give as much as we can," said Jerry Laney of the Artisian City Car Club.

"Every kid deserves a little Christmas, every kid. And that is what we are trying to do. We are trying to reach out and get kids who may not receive anything this Christmas," said U.S. Marine, Jeremy French.
