VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) –Hundreds of Lowndes County children will have a merry Christmas thanks to an angel.

Through the Salvation Army's Angel Tree Program, 748 children will get 3,500 gifts.

Parents picked up the toys Tuesday.

During this difficult time, single mother Juanita Hogan is thrilled Santa Claus will pay a visit to her two-year old twin boys and bring them the toys they asked for including tricycles and toy tractors.

"I am really grateful for the help they provided me," said Hogan. "I'm extremely happy because santa gave them their wish."

The Salvation Army purchased the toys with the help of the empty stocking fund.

Hundreds of toys were also donated by motorcyclists from the outback riders toy ride and from drives like one held by Langdale Honda.
